Join our art programs

Arts Access Victoria runs dynamic and diverse arts projects providing people with disability opportunities to create and celebrate art.

Programs range from weekly arts workshops through to special events such as exhibitions and live performances. Participants work alongside professional artists exploring a range of artforms such as filmmaking, animation, costume and set design, puppetry, sculpture, painting, theatre and dance.

The aim of each program is that it be ‘participant-driven’, meaning that each member of the group has a say in the artistic direction of the program.

All AAV arts programs are facilitated by professional practising artists and are fully-supported by qualified disability workers.
