This year Scope’s Kaleidoscope Exhibition was held at our Kangaroo Flat Hub in Bendigo and the Hawthorn Arts Centre.
Kaleidoscope is an inclusive visual arts project that has been conducted each year since 2006. This year Scope partnered with Arts Project Australia to conduct workshops and mentoring sessions specifically designed to develop artistic skills. The project culminated in two exhibitions and results were amazing!
In total, over 80 artists were involved in Kaleidoscope 2023 creating 108 pieces of artwork.
“The exhibitions are a fantastic way to showcase the work of our artists,” said Project Coordinator,
Kira Edwards. “Over the years many Kaleidoscope participants have picked up a paint brush for the first time and discovered their love for art, some have exhibited and sold their work, won awards or gone on to establish a successful career in the arts.”
Traditionally held only in Melbourne, this year Scope celebrated holding Kaleidoscope in a regional area for the first time with workshops hosted by artists with disability and an exhibition. What a wonderful way to nurture the creature talents of aspiring artists!
Kaleidoscope exhibitions bring people with disability and the local community together to participate in and celebrate disability arts.
