Diversityworks Trust has partnered with Arts Access Aotearoa to seek expressions of interest from Auckland artists with unique function/experience (disability) to participate in the Make –A –Difference Project 2013 and be trained as arts advocates. Up to 20 people will be accepted onto the programme.
There will be five workshops in total, starting on Saturday 23 March with an orientation workshop at Auckland Art Gallery.
The aim of the project is to see measurable improvements in the ways that arts organisations are inclusive of disabled people, and an increase in the number of disabled people accessing and participating in the arts.
To submit an expression of interest, the following needs to be emailed to Philip Patston by Friday 8 March:
• A curriculum vitae
• 100 word statement about why you would like to be part of the programme
• Name and contact details of a referee
• Your preferred day of the week for the workshop: weekday, Saturday or Sunday
Feel free to contact Philip with any queries.
