As part of the NSW Government’s commitment to the National Disability Strategy, $1.5 million in funding has been granted over two years to a NSW Arts and Disability Partnership. A CCS research team has been creating case studies based on some of the funded projects in order to identify and analyse their outcomes and impact on individuals, organisations and the wider community. The partnership’s funding and support is now encouraging a new model of inclusion for artists with disability who are valued for their artistic abilities and their contribution to the arts sector.
Members of the CCS research team: Professor Simon Darcy, Professor Jenny Onyx, Senior Lecturer Jenny Green and Senior Lecturer Melissa Edwards, supported by research assistants Hazel Maxwell and Simone Faulkner.
