15% of the global population has some type of disability, but representation is not equal.
Despite the surge in online imagery libraries there is still a lack of representation, so for our website, we decided to do things a little differently.
Studio A is a supported studio based in Sydney Australia that tackles the barriers that artists living with intellectual disability face in accessing conventional education, professional development pathways and opportunities needed to be successful and renowned visual artists. The enterprise paves professional pathways for such artists so that they can achieve their artistic and economic aspirations.
In 2019 the Disability Innovation Institute worked with Studio A to select and license images by Studio A artists for use on our website and other materials. In this way the Institute supports Studio A and its artists, and helps more generally to promote the work of artists with disability.
