The Australia Council for the Arts invites you to attend an information session about the new Artists with Disability Program.

The Australia Council recently announced a new Artists with Disability Program, to enable artists with disability to create, development, present, produce, exhibit and tour their work. Individuals and groups who identify as having disability can apply for grants of up to $10,000 for development and up to $20,000 for arts projects.
