Join us at the Art Gallery of New South Wales for a series of events celebrating inclusion and diversity.

Our program in association with the International Day of People with Disability (which is held on 3 December each year) includes two Art After Hours on 15 and 22 November 2023.

On 15 November, take part in an origama card-making workshop with artists emoeba h♡rtbridge and Bonnie Huang or a tarot reading with Mr Arcane (Adam Jones from Little Orange Studio), and join artists Tara Johns and Sue Jo Wright as they discuss their art practice.

On 22 November, the presentation of the National Arts and Disability Early Career Award 2023 is followed by a manga and comics workshop with artist Blake Thomas and talks by artists Martha Marlow and Angie Gota, with Mr Arcane again holding tarot reading sessions.

There’s also sensory-friendly early access to the Kandinsky exhibition on 25 November 2023, and our regular scheduled access programs for November.

Engage in artist-led talks, workshops and performances, and find out how the arts can champion diverse voices and lived experiences.
