As the NSW peak arts and disability organisation, we value the artistic contribution and impact that people with disability make to the ecology of Australian and international creative arts practice. This value extends across numerous contexts within our organisation and includes areas of advocacy, arts development and capacity building.

We work closely with the broader arts, disability and community sectors to create strong and supportive connections. These links enable people with disability to be woven into the fabric of arts and cultural practice, as arts professionals, audience members and as artists. These connective pathways give voice to diversity and difference.
