We all want to live in a world where everyone belongs and is respected. But do you know what this feels like for those around you? One way is to ask. Not just once, but many times.
We’re using art to open up these conversations between people with disability, family members, friends, and people who work in disability services. Talk to each other and share what it means to you to be safe, happy, cared for and equal. At the same time, wrap your thoughts into beautiful artworks for safekeeping!
Let’s make art together! Anyone can get involved.
You can make art in your home or disability service, your workplace, or join us at one of our art making spaces at the Disability Sports and Recreation Festival (IDPWD – 3 December) or the Having a Say Conference (4 – 6 February).
You can make art with any found objects! See our instructions for tips and hints on how to make your own wrap art using any found objects around you.
Download instructions in pdf or view them in HTML.
Wherever or whenever you’re getting creative with family, friends, support workers, staff at your disability service making wrap art, here are some conversation starters you can use.
Once you’re done, you can also send your reflections and artwork to us to be a part of an art exhibition in 2019.
the together project is a violence and abuse prevention initiative of the Disability Services Commissioner.
