Studio Artes recently moved into Sydenham, making a new home in the inner west.

Established in 2000, Studio Artes supports and empowers people living with disability through their tailored life-skills and creative programs. Studio Artes encourages people with disability to express themselves through painting, dancing, music, drama and cooking.

People living with disability have been heavily impacted by this pandemic, with the Disability Royal Commission into the impact of COVID on people with disability finding many feel 'expendable' due to a lack of specialised government support.

Organisations like Studio Artes quickly adapted to deliver their services online as the COVID-19 lockdown commenced, ensuring Inner Westies living with disability remained connected to community and support networks.

Thank you to CEO Deb Sazdanoff and all the support workers at Studio Artes for continuing to enrich and empower the lives of people living with disability throughout this pandemic and into the future. Welcome to the Inner West.
