    EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO ARTISTIC AND CREATIVE ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

    Date:

    The arts belong to everyone and Footscray Community Arts is making sure that happens in the western suburbs. But they need your help!

    As an independent charity, and one of the only arts organisations nationally to register as a NDIS Provider, accessible transport is vital to keep all artists connected.  

    Their Community Van is supporting d/Deaf and Disabled artists to visit galleries, connect with the arts industry and meet other artists in Melbourne’s thriving creative communities. 

    This includes facilitating opportunities to attend industry workshops, talks, networking, mentoring, and leadership events.  

    However, the van is over 20 years old, inaccessible, difficult to drive and unreliable, so Footscray Community Arts needs your help to buy a new van.

    Even better, if you donate today your impact will be doubled: with every dollar up to $50,000 being matched by Creative Partnerships Plus1 support. 

    If you think that the arts belongs to everybody, and can spare a dime or two, please help Footscray Community Arts help make the arts more inclusive.
