Arts Project Australia


Established in 1974, Arts Project Australia is a leader in the arts and disability sectors. APA was the first full-time art studio in Australia for artists with intellectual disabilities and has built a reputation both in Australia and internationally for achievements on this front. This is demonstrated by the consistency and quality of the exhibitions and programs that are produced and delivered, along with the extraordinary opportunities and experiences brokered for the artists, who have been included in exhibitions all over the world and are represented in countless public and private collections.

Arts Project Australia is buoyed by the creativity and authenticity that exists in the studio and gallery, and heartened by those who delight in sharing it. The organisation is driven by the idea that art is serious but making it can be fun, individual creativity triumphs over conformity and divergent voices make life much more interesting.
