Now in its 12th year, the ArtAbility® exhibition Diverse-CITY showcases multiple artworks from artists of all ages who are living with a disability, or an experience of mental ill health, and who come from culturally diverse backgrounds across Victoria. ArtAbility® provides the contributors the chance to be seen as artists by their peers, families and the community in general while promoting a message of ability, rather than disability, strength in diversity and personal empowerment through engagement with the broader community.ArtAbility® is a yearlong project made up of regular art workshops. These workshops are structured to provide opportunities for creativity, foster creative flow and will include drawing and using as inspiration, found objects, multimedia, new technologies, photography and collage.This year the exhibition is expecting around 100 artists to participate in ArtAbility®. This inspiring event provides a platform on which these artists can express their culturally rich personal journeys to some 40,000 members of the general public.
