What is ArtAbility?
ArtAbility is an inspiring visual arts program and exhibition run by ADEC that unites a range of talented artists who are living with a disability or an experience of mental ill health and people who come from culturally diverse backgrounds. As we celebrate our 15th Anniversary our goal is to strengthen the art and culture within our community, promoting positive values and principles.
ArtAbility® provides the contributors the chance to be seen as Artists by their peers, families and the community in general while promoting a message of ability rather than disability, strength in diversity and personal empowerment through engagement with the broader community.
Due to the current COVID19 Pandemic, we have postponed our Exhibition with tentative dates for Thursday 26th and Friday 27th November at the Preston City Hall, where you can enjoy the ArtAbility 2020 exhibition from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days.
The Exhibitions ‘Gala Afternoon Presentation', will take place from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Friday 27th November with nibbles, entertainment and most importantly of all the stars of the show, THE ARTWORK!!
Location: Preston Town Hall
284 Gower St, Preston VIC 3072
Date: Thursday 26th November - Friday 27th November 2020
Time: 10 - 4 pm (open to public)
ArtAbility® is all about celebrating the diversity of our community and recognising the talents of people living with a disability or who experience of mental ill health or those who come from culturally diverse backgrounds.
