Winning project from the regions

28/02/2013 - Sector News

The Russell Way Mid North Coast Residence, is an inclusive art project to be presented by Life Without Barriers in Nambucca Heads throughout 2013. The project won $19,000 funding from the Regional Arts Fund, and is the only project targeted towards people with disability in regional NSW to receive the federal funding.

Richard Holloway, the Regional Operations Manager for Life Without Barriers believes there are a few key elements about the project that enabled the success.

“Partnering with Nambucca Valley Phoenix to work together in delivering arts and disability projects in our region was key,” he said.

“We have also developed workshops as part of the project to provide professional development to local artists who can continue similar projects in the future.”

Central Coast based artist Russell Way will work with two local artists to provide an innovative visual arts program for people with intellectual disability in the Nambucca, Bellingen and Coffs Harbour LGAs.

The Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund awarded $393,040 in total to 22 major arts projects in regional NSW.
