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.
Each year EPIC supports professional and emerging artists with disability in our annual 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.
Now in its 5th consecutive year, the exhibition has become a much-loved celebration of International Day of People with Disability. Each year we select a theme which lends itself to different and varied interpretations, initiating though-provoking discussions and observations.
Last year’s theme, ‘A World of Difference,’ challenged us to consider the word ‘different,’ and discover what we can learn from the insights and life experiences of people with disability.
Our next exhibition will run from 29 October – 10 November 2019 at Graydon Gallery in New Farm, Brisbane. Artist submissions will open in July.
