ShireABILITY Art Award



Celebrating creativity among all abilities

ShireABILITY celebrates International Day of People with a Disability (IDPwD) on 3 December. ShireABILITY showcases the many organisations, facilities and spaces we have in Sutherland Shire that continually embrace being inclusive and celebrate people living in our community with disability.

The ShireABILITY Film Festivals held in 2019, 2020 and 2021 were a huge success. ShireABILITY Art Award is a new opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to share their creative talents and have their works exhibited at Hazelhurst Arts Centre. Open to artists with disability either living, working or going to school in the Sutherland Shire, to submit their original artworks - 2D, 3D or 4D. 

Get creative for your chance to WIN a share in over $2,500 worth of prizes.

Hazelhurst Arts Centre exhibition: Friday 25 November to Sunday 11 December.
