About the Show

ArtAbility® is an inspiring visual arts program run by ADEC that unites a range of over 100 talented artists of all ages who are living with a disability or an experience of mental ill health, who come from culturally diverse backgrounds across Victoria.

ArtAbility® provides the contributors the chance to be seen as “Artists” by their peers, families and the community in general while promoting a message of ability rather than disability, strength in diversity and personal empowerment through engagement with the broader community.

For 14 years ArtAbility have been working to strengthen the art and culture within our community, promoting values and principles that allow us to create a better and more equitable world for all. On the 12th October, in Preston Town Hall, you can enjoy the exhibition ‘Building the Future together’ from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The ‘Gala Exhibition Night’ (is a ticketed event), will take place from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. If you need additional tickets, visit the following link and purchase

ArtAbility® will continue to be made up of contributing artists, collaborations with other organisations and art workshops. Artwork that has been submitted will be on display during this time at the Preston Town Hall during the day for general members of the public to view with a Gala Night held the night of the 12th with nibbles, entertainment and most importantly of all the stars of the show, THE ARTWORK!!
