“All Access” Exhibition Thistle Hall 3-7 December
All Access is a collaborative exhibition for Disability Pride Week, uniting people with different abilities and skills to celebrate their artistic identity, destigmatise disability and educate/engage the wider Wellington Community. The primary kaupapa for this project is equity of opportunities for valid expression for people who experience barriers/exclusion from mainstream exhibitions. This innovative structure aims to include: low hanging artwork for wheelchairs, tactile/touchable art (including vinyl overlays) and audio description (made by artists with uninterpreted view) for vision impairment, as well as artist led workshops and seminars (for empowerment).
Celebrating the hardwork and creativity of Pablos Artists. join us for the Zine Exhibition running from the 31st of October to the 23rd of November. This exhibition will highlight the zines created within Pablos group workshops.
