The NDIS represents a strategic opportunity to advocate for ‘reasonable and practical support’ for the needs of artists with disability and to gather information about questions surrounding the operation of the scheme. In support of the NDIS, Accessible Arts, the Octapod Association and the City of Newcastle has set out to gain a keen understanding of issues for artists with disability from the launch site of the Hunter region.

Sharon Grierson, Federal MP for Newcastle will officially open the Arts and the Individual forum, which will be held at the Newcastle Museum on 28 February. Artists, carers and service providers are invited to share and explore issues and ideas in relation to the roll-out of the NDIS, specific to artists in the Hunter Region.
