SMART ART INCLUDES YOU – IN SCHOOL PROGRAM

Octapod has partnered with Ability Links NSW and Community Disability Alliance Hunter (CDAH) to deliver a program called ‘Smart Art Includes You’ across Hunter region schools during Term 2 this year. 

Primary and High Schools across the region including the Central Coast, Upper Hunter and Port Stephens will experience workshops and presentations with CDAH Peer Workers and local artists with lived experience of disability or a strong alignment to community and inclusion.

The program has been designed to build capacity, awareness and inclusion in school communities and to recognise the value of the arts and creative practice as inclusive tools of wellbeing and self expression.

Octapod’s artists look forward to working with students on their artworks!

Read the story from the Muswellbrook Chronicle about the first series of workshops with CDAH’s fabulous Peer Workers.
