MANDURAH’S centre for contemporary arts, INQB8.mandurah, has collaborated with Community First International to present the annual Ability Arts exhibition, Identity.
On now until November 11, the exhibition has allowed the participants of Community First International’s Ability Arts Program to explore identity through a geographical, individual and collective sense, looking deeper into their sense of place within their lives and communities.
There are also short films on display which were written, acted and produced by Ability Arts participants.
Identity showcases the work the artists and facilitators do within their communities and individuals and as a strong, prominent and proactive arts group.
Ability Arts provides programs and services for people with disability, allowing participants to explore creativity in a variety of mediums including visual arts, ceramics, photography, media and film, drama and music.
For the past four years, Community First International has received funding from Country Arts WA to deliver numerous creative, capacity building master classes facilitated by local and metropolitan professional artists.
Since this project, Welden has facilitated many poetry workshops with the artists.
As a gesture of her strong connection with the program, she officially launched the exhibition on Friday, November 2 at INQB8.mandurah.
As part of the exhibition, artist Lyn Walker and drama facilitator Kellee Aberg will present two free community workshops at INQB8.mandurah throughout the week.
