In conjunction with the International Day of People with Disability, the creative talents of local youth living with an intellectual disability, from Wyong’s Job Centre Australia Transition to Work (TTW) program, will be on display in Wyong Council Chambers from 30th November – 4th December.
Walk in my Shoes is an art exhibition which will feature work created by participants, with the support of local artists. These artworks will tell the stories of individual participant’s struggles, achievements and barriers they have overcome.
TTW Co-ordinator Samantha Addy said “This will be a very powerful exhibition that aims to celebrate and promote awareness, inclusiveness and accessibility in the local community. It’s a great opportunity for our program participants to express themselves creatively, engage in the community and have the opportunity to exhibit their work. We’re all very excited at the opportunity and look forward to a successful exhibition”.
The general public are welcome to view the display at Wyong Shire Council Civic Centre, 2 Hely St, Wyong. For further information please phone Job Centre Australia’s TTW Wyong Office on 4352 1555.
