Macability Award - entries now open

Date posted: 
18 September 2012

The annual Fisher's Ghost Art Awards from this year have a new category for artists with a disability.

Category F is the MACABILITY AWARD proudly sponsored by Macarthur Disability Services (MDS) to encourage and recognise the work of artists with a disability.

This category is made possible through the work of Jessica Fesic, herself an artist and a current participant in the MDS Leadership Forward Program 2012 as her idea for a leadership project in our community.

Please invite any person with a disability who is an aspiring artist to submit an artwork taking the following into account:
