Nexus 2021 applications are open

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

Three Nexus artists at the Art Centre Melbourne Channel.

Nexus at the Channel, The Kiln, Arts Centre Melbourne, 2019.

You may have been making art 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 and a support worker provided throughout the program.

Workshops will run from 4 February to 25 March Thursdays, 11.00 am – 1.00 pm, at our office in South Melbourne.

If you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity, please download the form and email it to Eva Sifis (AAV Project Officer) at 

For more information, please contact Eva Sifis (AAV Project Officer) at or on (03) 9699 8299. 

Eva Sifis has been a performing artist before and after acquiring a brain injury 21 years ago. She is the perfect person to take you through the Nexus 2021!
