Art and You: A Planning Guide

‘Art & You: A Planning Guide’ is a downloadable workbook for Deaf and Disabled people to help them advocate for art in thier lives.

Developed in collaboration with a group of Disabled artists, ‘Art & You’ is a combination guide and workbook to help people advocate for art.

All of these exercises are designed to help you clearly articulate why art matters to you, what kind of art you want to make and how, when and with whom you want to make art.

‘Art & You’ aims to help you feel confident in talking about your artmaking to friends, family, colleagues, health professionals and, most importantly, NDIS planners.
