Grants program for artists with disability now open

18 July 2013



Minister for Disability Services Andrew Constance is encouraging applicants for the innovative Delineate arts program designed to boost and foster arts and disability practice in NSW.

"Grants programs such as Delineate ensure the voice of people with disability is heard whether it is expressed through dance, music, theatre, literature, visual and screen arts and mixed media," Mr Constance said.

"Projects which raise public awareness about disability are encouraged."

Six recipients will receive $3,000 each to support an arts project to be developed throughout the Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign.

This year, for the first time, Accessible Arts will capture and document the Delineate projects across NSW.

The film produced will be screened at the Minister's International Day of People with Disability celebration in December 2013.

"Film and video is a powerful medium and it will be exciting to see all the Delineate projects showcased at the screening" said Sancha Donald, Chief Executive Officer, Accessible Arts.

Delineate is a key highlight of the annual Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign and seeks to enrich the cultural initiatives of the campaign.

Run in partnership with Accessible Arts, Delineate welcomes applications from disability services coordinating arts programs, service providers working with people with disability in the arts, as well as individual artists.

Applications close on Monday 26 August 2013.

The Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign celebrates International Day of People with Disability in NSW with events and activities throughout November and December which promote inclusion, diversity and the ability of people with disability.
