ABOUT THE 2018 NT ARTS ACCESS AWARDS

NT Arts Access Awards will be held as part of the 2018 Meeting Place program.

Meeting Place is the signature event of Arts Access Australia, the national peak body for arts and disability in Australia. Meeting Place is a national forum created in 2012 to build stronger linkages and collaboration between stakeholders. Meeting Place is held annually and brings artists with disability together with industry leaders in an accessible and supported space, to present, perform, discuss and debate the latest in arts and disability. The first international Meeting Place was held in Germany in 2017, and the aim is to hold an international forum every four years. Arts Access Australia is excited that this year’s Meeting Place will be held in Alice Springs. This will be the first time in the events history that Meeting Place will be held in regional Australia. The forum will be co-hosted by Incite Arts. https://www.meetingplaceforum.org/

 

 

WHO WE ARE: New Work by Artists from the Free Space Studio

Screen Shot 2018-05-23 at 8.47.15 PM

Who We Are looks at ideas and perspectives around identity,
suggesting that the processes of art making can facilitate the
communication of aspects of our identity. Considering identity
is both an introspective and outward-looking process, we can
frame identity in poetics or politics, in humour or pop-culture;
the self can also be felt, and expressed through gestural or abstract responses.
