At ARTSIDER’s we redefine creativity, making it not just an enjoyable activity but also a tool for self-discovery and self-expression. We are leaders in the field of arts and disabilities, establishing a model for a creative community guided by the principle that art/creativity/making and creating is fundamental to human expression and that all people are entitled to its tools of communication.
Our vision is clear; Art and Creativity will be the path forward for people with disabilities to express themselves, determining their own process with gentle non-imposing guidance.
We offer a wide range of activities; arts, crafts, screen printing, sculpture, fabric/textile arts, ceramics, candle making, jewellery making, mosaic, weaving and paper making. Our trained workshop facilitators (who are all professional artists/tutors) are dedicated to providing a person driven experience, encouraging positive risk-taking and assisting people to explore their individual creativity.
At ARTSIDER’s we encourage community participation, offering a variety of creative workshops to the community in general and other community groups. Several times per year we invite guest tutors/artists to visit, creating opportunities to experience different creative modalities.
There are a number of community artists offering their expertise to Life Stylers and staff.
