About this event

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS HAPPENING ON FRIDAY 6 AUGUST 12-1PM

Enjoy an hour of conversation with artists Alison Alder, Moria Nelson, Mattie Templeman and Hands On Studio Director Tilly Davey in conjunction with the exhibition Hands On Studio: The Town.

Founded in 1996, this year marks the 25th year of operation for Hands On Studio. Over that time, Hands On Studio has become a leader in the field of arts and disabilities in the Canberra region. Hands On has developed a model for a creative community guided by the principle that art is fundamental to human expression and that all people are entitled to its avenues of communication.

Using abstract thought processes, The Town acts as a ‘model’ for a desirable and accessible society. Working as a collective, the artists have used found materials to create utopian spaces unified into a vibrant architectural metropolis. The Town provokes critical thought about the ways in which we may improve society and build strong and vibrant communities that are accessible to all

Hands On Studio: The Town is on at the Drill Hall Gallery from 25 June - 15 August
