Artists IGNITE through ART

Posted by Amritpal Singh on 26 October 2018
Artists IGNITE through ART

Ignite is a joint project of Rotary Club of Melbourne and Arts Access Victoria. This new partnership between Rotary Club of Melbourne and Arts Access Victoria, the State's leading arts and disability organization which delivers community arts and cultural development programs for more than 2,000 people with a disability, aimed at securing employment outcomes.

It also supports artists with a disability, enables Rotarians to have a greater visibility of their work and provides a potential source of income through acquisition or leasing of high quality artworks. This focus aligns with our wish to be involved in welfare projects which provide vocational opportunities for lesser advantaged groups in our community.
