Art is a powerful medium for people with disability. Art can capture ideas not easily expressed with words, and evoke feelings we didn’t know lay within us.
Every two years EPIC supports professional and emerging artists with disability in our biannual art exhibition. For many of our artists, this event sparks a passion for art and helps launch their career as artists. The exhibition is free to enter, and artists receive 100% of profits if their artwork is sold.
With 5 years of history under its belt, the exhibition has become a much-loved celebration of International Day of People with Disability. Each year we select a theme that lends itself to different and varied interpretations, initiating thought-provoking discussions and observations.
2021 art exhibition – great things are coming!
We’re busy working behind the scenes to bring you the theme and details for our upcoming 2021 art exhibition. If you would like to be notified when artist submissions open for 2021, fill out the online enquiry form on this page.
While you wait, why not check out the blog posts at the bottom of this page that highlight our talented artists with disability from 2019? In our fifth annual art exhibition, ‘Shifting Perspectives’, we called upon artists and audiences to alter their view point and see things in a new way. The exhibition asked you to consider different points of view, attitudes and to understand these artworks, our contributing artists, and our place in society.
