This year marks 30 years of the Art Day South (ADS) inclusive studio. Join us on a trip down memory lane in celebration of all things ADS.

ADS is Arts Access Victoria’s longest-running studio, starting out as a pilot program in St Kilda and then finding a permanent home in Dingley Village. ADS is a beacon in inclusive arts practice in Australia and has been supporting Deaf and Disabled artists in the South East for over 30 years. We can’t wait to see what the future holds.

In the words of ADS artist Heather White “We’re all friends and we have a happy time together and play music and we do different art together. When it is home time we don’t want to go home. Our artworks are very colourful and they stand out.”

The works can be experienced online via Kunst Matrix (an interactive Java Script gallery), our Website Gallery or by downloading a PDF.

All still artworks are audio described (available on our website gallery as individual tracks or you can listen to them all as one track below).

All video works are captioned and are in the process of being audio described.

The opening night event of Art Day South: 30 years is available online to stream Via youtube or below.
