Art Day South

For more than 20 years, Art Day South has been a model of inclusive practice, where artists work collaboratively to produce high-quality contemporary work.

Art Day South is a flagship program of Arts Access Victoria and a model of inclusive arts practice, where artists work collaboratively to explore, develop and produce new work.

The Art Day South studio is based in Dingley and works with the local community of emerging artists in the southern region. Members of the Art Day South studio have explored and worked across a variety of visual mediums. A team of visual artists work with each group member to continually introduce new art forms and to further develop existing skills and arts practices.

“H has loved his year with Art Day South and I am so grateful he is able to be part of this amazing program – his confidence and sense of self has grown a lot in the last year and I feel sure Art Day South has really helped because he feels a sense of belonging and it is a place his creativity is recognised and fostered.”
