ConnectAbility Australia supports the promotion of arts activities and artists through our innovative creative program.
It is led by Susan Porteous, Arts Facilitator for ConnectAbility who has a degree in fine arts and a bachelor in Community Services. In 2015, she was awarded an NSW Disability Industry (NDS) Innovation Award for ‘Excellence in individualized decision support & service provision’ for improving the social and economic participation of people with disability. Susan is committed to ensuring that people with a disability achieve individual outcomes from the arts programs. This program creates a fantastic opportunity for people with a disability to develop skills, experience and independence through recreational art activities.
Programs and activities are uniquely tailored so that every person has an individual outcome based upon their goals.
