Hi Friend

We have lots of accessible arts events and opportunities to share with you this month. Things are getting busier as 'Mad March' steadily approaches Adelaide. 

If a new year has inspired a new art project that you'll need some funding for, why not come along to Access2Arts' Grant Writing Workshop? The details are included below. Also featured below are artist opportunities for new projects and the accessible events that will be taking place at the Adelaide Fringe over the course of February. 

Have a great month!


We must now recognise that disability is not created as the result of various medical impairments, but is in fact, created by society’s collective failure to adapt to and embrace and celebrate the varying levels of ability which we all have.
- Jordon Steele-John
