Arts North West | Putting The Pieces Together

Arts North West invites you to celebrate the International Day of People with a Disability by joining them for the launch of the Putting the Pieces Together Project, a community art project that has involved 80 artists from the New England North West region that identify with and without disability.

Putting The Pieces Together is a hands-on community art project fostering a strong and inclusive arts and cultural landscape in the New England North West.

Putting the Pieces Together is a suite of strategic creative activities across the New England North West region to engage and collaborate with the different elements of our arts and cultural sector including artists with and without disability, the wider community and cultural organisations. It will build on existing creative opportunities in New England North West for artists with disability to participate in high quality art projects alongside their contemporaries, to explore, document and celebrate our region’s diversity.

Through a series of workshops and activities, participants will have used large blank puzzle pieces as a canvas to express their own artistic experience.

This artistic collaborative result has been realised as an art installation of 20 cubes made from 80 individual puzzle pieces, representative of building blocks of an inclusive arts sector.

The official project launch will be revealed at the Creative Arts Centre, Gunnedah on Saturday 3 December at 10am.

For further information please contact Arts North West.

This program, Putting the Pieces Together, is supported by devolved funding administered by Accessible Arts (AARTS) on behalf of the Lifetime Care and Support Authority (LTCSA).
