New partnership between Arts Access Victoria and Lucy Guerin Inc
We are delighted to announce a new multi-year partnership between AAV and LGI starting in 2021.
Through a wide range of activities, this partnership seeks to increase the engagement of Deaf and Disabled artists at WXYZ Studios and with LGI, and to build capacity and knowledge in the broader community about access and inclusion. Plans include an annual studio residency at WXYZ Studios led by AAV, as well as masterclasses, forums and other events for the professional arts community.
“Arts Access Victoria’s (AAV) work diversifies the bodies, thinking and ways of being usually experienced in arts and cultural spaces. We are curious to learn what creativity and artistry that could emerge from this new and exciting partnership with LGI.”
– Caroline Bowditch, CEO, AAV
“So looking forward to an exchange with Arts Access Victoria and the richness and inspiration this will bring to our studios. We aim to challenge the barriers and stereotypes that have existed for too long in our sector and connect more fully with the work of Deaf and Disabled Artists”
– Lucy Guerin, Artistic Director, LGI
This partnership will also play a key role in LGI’s Disability Action Plan by directly addressing existing barriers and supporting the development of artistic practice for Deaf and Disabled artists.
