My Left Leg
2 - 20 DEC Kings Floor
The My Left Leg project is an art competition and exhibition designed to increase awareness about the difficulties people with disabilities have negotiating a world built by those without a disability.
The Project is the concept of the Limestone Coast Inclusion Reference Group. Members of this group either have disabilities or have a family member with a disability. The group have helped with consultation for local Council’s Disability Access Inclusion Plans and have projects underway with a focus on accessibility and inclusion in community for all.
There are two main categories: artists with disability and artists without disability, and two subcategories within each: 16 & Under and Open.
Artists with a disability were asked to create an artwork which depicts their disability along with a short story about their disability and how it impacts on their everyday life. Those without a disability were given a choice of 5 disabilities to do an artwork based on their interpretation of that disability and a short story on how they came to that interpretation.
Artworks will be on display in the Kings Floor until 20 December.
