Art connecting communities
SSI Ability Links NSW will host an amazing art showcase featuring eight emerging artists living in regional NSW including Jindabyne, Yass, Bomaderry, Woonona, Albion Park, Leura, Katoomba and Wollongong. Art connects communities and the New Beginnings Festival is delighted to be presenting these upcoming artists to Sydney audiences!
At the stall, you will also find Connecting our Community: stories of courage, strength and determination, a compilation of personal stories of success and achievement of people who have been supported by the Ability Links NSW program.
The stories capture the voice and the journey of each storyteller with the aim of motivating and encouraging social change. By highlighting the valuable contribution people with disability make, they also illustrate the reciprocal benefit that inclusion has for individuals and communities.
Ability Links NSW (ALNSW) is a free program that supports people with disability aged 9 to 64, their families and carers. The program is designed to help people plan for their future by building on their strengths and skills to lead the life they want as valued members of their community.
