Encouraging Inclusion Through Art

 

Dog at Home Michael Gough

 

 

Where we live and what makes a place “home” has a different meaning for us all.  The artists at Windarring have been exploring ideas to demonstrate their sense of feeling and space that represents what home means for them.  Using primarily acrylics on canvas, Windarring artists have each created a beautiful representation that will be on show at The Chamber Art & Coffee House in High Street, Woodend with an exhibition titled “This is Where I Live”.

 



 

 

Windarring is a people centred, community based organisation committed to eliminating barriers to participation, inclusion and acceptance for people with disabilities in their local community.  The dedicated art programs at Windarring encourage individual creativity and demonstrates the power to break down barriers and unite people through art.  This exhibition is a celebration of the diversity of people and acknowledgment of inclusion within our community.

Windarring owes thanks to the generous support of Macedon Ranges Shire Council via the Community Funding Scheme, The Chamber Art & Coffee House in Woodend and also to Bunnings in Sunbury who again have shown they are always happy to help out.

“This is Where I Live” will opened on Wednesday 24 June, 2015 and was on display for 4 weeks.  All artworks displayed were for sale with proceeds directly supporting Windarring.
