This morning I attended the opening of the Monkami Art Exhibition, ‘Do you see what I see?’, held at the Maroondah Art Gallery at Maroondah Federation Estate
The Exhibition was opened by Cr Rob Steane and features artwork by people with an intellectual disability. Monkami is a not-for-profit community organisation that provides pathways for people with an intellectual disability, through providing creative, education and employment opportunities.
Monkami has a strong community focus through involving their clients in the community to showcase their abilities. The Art exhibition complements a range of activities undertaken by the organisation, including volunteering, performing arts and educational programs.
The Monkami Art Exhibition will be featured at the Maroondah Art Gallery until the 17th of October.
