Nexus 2020 applications are open

Nexus 2020 is a free eight-week skills development program for artists with Acquired/Traumatic Brain Injury aged 18-26.  

You may have been an established artist before your injury, or perhaps art is something you have found since. Either way, this is a golden opportunity for you to: 

  • Learn how to maintain a successful arts practice within the Disability Arts sector 
  • Hear from artists and professionals in the field  
  • Build a network that can support you in your future career 

Building from the success of previous Nexus programs, this year’s program has been adapted by and for people with Acquired/Traumatic Brain Injury. The contents are based on life experiences common to artists after acquiring a brain injury. There will be regular breaks, breakout rooms, a support worker. Other AAV staff will be present to help facilitate break out room activities.

We will provide information about how to use Zoom effectively and safely.

Workshops will run from 15 October to 3 December on Thursdays, 11.00 am – 1.00 pm online, via Zoom.

If you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity, please fill in the form below, or download the Word document version and email it to Eva Sifis (AAV Project Officer) at by 5.00 pm Monday 28 September.
