Supported Studio Workshop Program - Call out for EOIs


About the Program

Our Granville Centre Art Gallery (GCAG) has received funding from The Department of Social Services, Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) to develop a pilot studio based workshop program, for emerging artists with disability, d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing artists and/or Disabled Creatives.

The program has been initiated to support the artistic and professional development of local emerging artists within a visual arts framework and will be run two days a week from July to November 2022.

It includes opportunities for emerging artists to:

  • Learn and be mentored by professional artists
  • Access creative studio workshop space
  • Connect with the Granville Centre Art Gallery exhibitions, curator(s) and gallery team
  • Collaborate with other participating artists to create new work for exhibition.

In partnership with GCAG, this program will be led by an arts facilitator with disability or who is d/Deaf or Hard of Hearing or who identifies as a Disabled Creative.
