SUPPORT US

Front Up is a new innovative community program with a Hub based in Western Sydney that offers participants access to multi-layered professional arts and cultural education, as well as linking participants with existing NSW Government education programs and services.

The three programs offered titled Explore, Discover and Emerge, will all aim to build confidence and self-esteem within participants, with the ultimate goal of assisting them to find pathways to access communities, further education, future employment and volunteer opportunities within the arts industry.

While the Front Up Arts and Cultural Program has been created and will be supported by Ability Options, who have pledged a 10 year commitment, the cost of running these programs is intensive. To be able to continue to provide and maintain a creative Hub, materials and range of disability-led programs for participants, we will rely greatly on the generosity of donations, funding grants and volunteers.
