Upcoming arts events and opportunities for artists living with disability


Explain Normal

Explain Normal unpacks the concept of “normal” as both survival mechanism and death making, as myth, as someone else’s truth, as a potent provocation for perspectives on society and difference, and how we value otherness.

Explain Normal is a new dance theatre work directed by participatory artist Daniele Constance. It is an exciting artistic collaboration between the Aha Ensemble who identify with disability and artists from Phluxus2 Dance Collective. Explain Normal explores how these artists define perceptions of normalcy, through the lens of their diverse experiences.

Outside In – Expressions of Interest

St Vincent’s Private Hospital Brisbane and St Vincent’s Private Hospital Northside are inviting expressions of interest from artists and groups whose art would enliven wards and public hospital spaces, bringing beauty, colour and vibrancy to patients, staff and visitors in 2020.

Outside In is an annual program of vibrant and engaging visual art exhibitions that transform our hospital environments across our two hospital campuses. Outside In provides hospital patients with a connection to the outside world and gives artists the opportunity to show their work in a unique way to a wide audience, positively influencing patient outcomes.

We are looking for collections of artworks that provide our patients with a connection to the outside world that will stimulate encounters with people, places and experiences beyond the hospital itself. Artists and art groups should consider submitting proposals for exhibitions of artwork that will inspire and motivate, bring joy, provide opportunities for reflection and contemplation, and engage memory and recognition.

Artworks are displayed in the main foyers, public corridors and wards of both hospitals Exhibition spaces in the hospitals are allocated based on proposed number of artworks in an exhibition, artwork dimensions and subject/content.

Exhibitions are typically displayed for a duration of six months. We encourage sale or commission of work asking for a 20 per cent donation from any successful transaction created through our exhibition.
