Twelve artists with disability have been announced as the recipients of Amplify your art grants by the Minister for the Arts, George Souris, and the Minister for Ageing & Disability Services, Andrew Constance. The recipients were announced at Shopfront Theatre for Young People in Carlton.

Mark Coure, the Member for Oatley, Sarah Vyne Vassallo, Accessible Arts manager of the project, recipient and artist Matthew Massaria, and Amanda Foote, the General Manager of Shopfront were also in attendance.

“Artists with disability have a valuable and important contribution to make to the State’s artistic and cultural life,” Mr Constance said.

“The Amplify your art program will help and encourage these artists to reach their full potential.”

Amplify your art is a devolved funding program administered by Accessible Arts on behalf of the NSW Government through Arts NSW and Ageing, Disability and Home Care.
