COLLABORATING TO HELP CHANGE LIVES FOR THE BETTER
The team at Art Advocacy Australia understands that great ideas & innovation come from collaboration.
We build a community of Art Advocacy Allies whose services, resources, & specialties we advocate in support.
Collaboratively we support the creative projects of our talented artists with disabilities & mental health conditions through commissioning opportunities, grants, sponsorships, partnerships, & philanthropy that directly provide our artists the initial financial assistance needed in launching their professional careers.
From portfolio development, marketing, & mentoring support, through to celebrated art exhibitions launches, together we showcase the excellence in artistry that develops respect & recognition for our professional artists within the mainstream arts & cultural sector, both in Australia & globally.

CHANGING SOCIAL PERCEPTION OF WHAT DEFINES DISABILITY IS A HUGE TASK
We believe in the power of collaboration to make a greater social impact - Changing social perspectives through integration & adaptive innovative leadership in our people-centered approach to empower our artist!
Changing Social Perceptions
Join us in collaborating with individuals & corporations, government organisations & galleries, & all art enthusiasts who want to help ensure that the artwork & stories told by artists with disability are actively recognised & celebrated within our cultural identity.
The pathway to the arts doesn't pave itself. It requires leadership, a passion for change, planning, & above all the support of those who can make a difference. We are grateful for the many organisations working with us to open doors to the arts for people with disability & mental health conditions.
