Axiom: A Reimagined Reality is an exhibition featuring 50 artists, who are sharing their vibrant and multi-disciplinary works in celebration of the International Day of People with Disability on December 3rd.

The exhibition is an initiative of the Brotherhood of St Laurence, alongside Arts Access Victoria and Footscray Community Arts Centre, hosted at the spACE@Collins, a contemporary arts space in Melbourne’s CBD that is fully accessible.

The International Day of People with Disability has been recognised in Australia since 1996, and aims to increase public awareness and understanding of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions. The vibrant and diverse exhibition highlights the talent and creativity of Melbourne artists, and is supported by an audio described tour, Auslan tour and sensory session to ensure everyone in the community can experience the show.

Director of the NDIS Services at the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Rodney Weston highlights the power of art to connect. He explains ‘art can be really honest communication – at a level that’s all too rare in a world where people are always watching their words. People share their passions, their pleasures and their pains through what they create.’

Everyone is welcome at SpACE@Collins to visit Axiom: A Reimagined Reality, as the CBD site is wheelchair accessible, and service and assistance animal friendly.
