In partnership with Arts Access Victoria, we are excited to announce Nimbus, a weekly visual art studio for artists with disability is back for term two at the Bundoora Homestead Art Centre.
This is a rare opportunity for a group of committed artists to explore their individual arts practice with the support and expertise of experienced artists in a contemporary art gallery setting. In addition to practical studio work, artists will have access to gallery exhibitions and professional development opportunities including portfolio building, writing artist statements and preparing work for presentation.
The Nimbus supported visual arts studio will be housed within the portable studio space “Nebula” inside the grounds of Bundoora Homestead Art Centre.
Arts Access Victoria are currently inviting artists with disability who work in any visual art form to apply.
WHEN | 12 April – 28 June (every Thursday) 9:30am – 3:30pm
