Get Out! is a visual and performing arts program for adults with a disability,
providing respite for their family and voluntary carers.
Get Out! is designed for adults with a disability, including those with an intellectual, physical, sensory disability or an acquired brain injury. Get Out! is facilitated by professional visual and performing artists, and qualified support workers.
Lead artist Katie Lockett, supporting artist Melissa Lucas and On Site Coordinator Adam Teeuwsen work with Get Out! participants to introduce new art forms and develop existing skills. The program has developed over eight years in response to the interests, needs and skills of participants. In 2006, the group created a performance piece incorporating music, drama, set design and costume making. In 2007 the group focussed on the convergence of performing and visual arts practice. The group produced a short film Blue Bye You, using life-size marionette puppets. The group has also participated in a community parade in Frankston. In 2009 Diane Doesn’t Sleep, an engaging, surreal performance featuring art, stories, music and sculpture, was performed at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre. 2011 saw the group present No Drama at the Uniting Church in Frankston, a series of small vignettes showcasing the individual passions and creativity of the group members.
Currently the group is working on a public performance for December 8th 2012, in Franskton, Sound and Vision. Sound and Vision will explore the many facets of communication and dialogue using percussion, hand sculpted mega phones and movement.
In addition to all the art activities, Get Out! offers adults with a disability an opportunity to meet people who share similar interests.
Get Out! is run at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre. This venue is completely accessible and offers a creative community space for the program to work in.
