How has responding to discrimination influenced your life? We all have a story about discrimination, and we want you to tell us yours in creative form! Arts Access Australia is currently calling for expressions of interest from artists with disability to be part of a national multimedia exhibition, to be presented as part of the Arts Activated conference in October 2014.
In Australia, it is discrimination to treat a person less favourably because of their disability, than a person without disability would be treated in the same circumstances. Discrimination can also occur where people with and without disability receive the same treatment, but where the impact of that treatment is to disadvantage or exclude people with disability.
Experiences of discrimination can challenge us. They can be isolating, liberating, frustrating or empowering. How we respond to discrimination can have a profound effect, both on ourselves and the people around us.
Through video, photography, painting or performance, share your experience of Discrimination: the good, the bad, the ugly! This exhibition will be delivered as a one hour feature session at the Arts Activated 2014 conference, and will include a fully accessible audience experience.
Applications are invited from established and emerging artists, performers, musicians, cultural organisations and community groups. Applications will close on Friday 25 July 2014.
The art works selected as part of this expression of interest process will be compiled into an inclusive and accessible multimedia exhibition, to be delivered as part of Arts Activated 2014.
