Able Australia, formerly the deafblind association, provides a range of support services for people with multiple disabilities. Ableart 2008 was the second exhibition promoting artwork by people with multiple disabilities. The program aims to provide art therapy through providing ways for people with multiple disabilities to explore their creativity and express themselves through their artwork.
This afternoon I attended the launch of the Ableart 2008 exhibition at Australia on Collins in Melbourne’s CBD. A number of artists were available at the launch to discuss their works and it was great to see a strong community interest in the artworks.
The Ableart exhibition will be shown throughout September and 100% of the purchase price goes directly to the artist. For further details please visit www.ableaustralia.org.au.
