About:
Arts programs play a key role in opening a dialogue between people with disability and the broader community. The arts is often the lynchpin to rebuilding confidence and wellbeing of individuals, and regular participation in such programs can lead to positive employment, education, social and community engagement outcomes.

Art & You is an advocacy tool to assist artists with disability and those experiencing mental illness to advocate for their own engagement in arts and culture within an individualised planning framework.

This tool has been co-designed by Arts Access Victoria with and for people with disabilities and people with lived experience of mental illness who are interested in the arts, as artists, arts producers, arts workers and arts audiences. It forms part of a self-advocacy tool kit to assist individuals, their families, support networks and carers, in planning for meetings to articulate their desires and needs for arts participation and engagement as a pathway to improved wellbeing, social connectedness and economic participation.
