The Arts are for Everyone

Access Arts has been working to support people with disability or disadvantage for over 30 years. We believe that everybody deserves quality access to arts activities and the opportunity to work towards a career in the arts.

Our work is widely recognised and our artists excel across all art forms. We also reach out to the community, listen to what people want and provide professionally facilitated arts workshops that give our members a creative outlet.


Roll up! Roll Up! Join hands and take a giant leap into a joyous and magical world without boundaries when Access Arts takes us to the circus – with new project Leaps and Bounds.

A world of wonder, colour and hoops, Leaps and Bounds will give people with disability a safe and happy realm to grow their talent, unleash their imagination and nurture pride and confidence – all under a magic umbrella. .

Led by industry professionals including the award-winning Vulcana Women’s Circus, workshop participants will learn new skills and get fit through an electrifying fusion of dance and circus. Through the journey they will also forge new friendships and ignite fresh creativity in their daily lives.

“It’s challenging and rewarding to work with other bodies and learn how to balance, move and flow with other people,’’ says one Vulcana participant. “I find Acrobalance to be a fantastic way to develop more body awareness and strength.’’

Leaps and Bounds will culminate in a grand finale performance at Brisbane Powerhouse in December when, to mark International Day of People with Disability, workshop participants will dazzle onlookers with their new and amazing feat.

But Access Arts needs help to launch this inspirational project. Your donation will assist to fund the highly skilled artists needed to run the Leaps and Bounds workshops. As a result, your donation will help transform someone’s life and bring pleasure to their loved ones. Please help us meet our fundraising target of $4000 by June 30, 2018. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.
