Strong Women, Circus Sisters - A Photographic Exhibition

Exhibition: Thursday 5th - Tuesday 17th December 2013 An exhibition showcasing the work of Aart Groothuis as he follows the rehearsal journey of the Women with Disabilities ACT's Strong Women, Circus Sisters Troupe.

Funded through Disability ACT as an International Day of People with Disabilities (I-Day) event, this exhibition compliments the Troupe's I-Day performance on the 3rd of December 2013 on Canberra City Walk.

At its heart the Strong Women, Circus Sisters exhibition supports and reflects women with disabilities' choice to be involved in a fun fitness program.  The works, which have been selected by curator Christine Cummings, reflect this by showing women with disabilities preparing in a positive way for a creative, unique event which will involve people with different abilities in the ACT community. The exhibition also intends to break down stereotypes of 'acceptable' community activities for people with disabilities.

As a registered Canberra Centenary event, this exhibition recognises women with disabilities as strong and respected contributors to the ACT community.
