Get Out!

Get Out! is a visual and performing arts program for adults with disability, providing respite for their families and voluntary carers

Get Out! is designed for adults with 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.

Please see link for the last issues of Get Out News for 2013

Lead artist Katie Lockett, supporting artist Lea Czikowski and On Site Coordinator Adam Teeuwsen work with Get Out! participants to introduce new visual and performing art forms and develop existing skills. The program has developed over nine years in response to the direct interests, needs and skills of participants. Workshops are exploratory, developmental, skill based, social and fun. Recent outcomes include, in 2009 Diane Doesn’t Sleep, an engaging, surreal performance featuring art, stories, music and sculpture, performed at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre. 2011 saw the group present No Drama, a series of small vignettes showcasing individual and group works. In 2012 The Happy Stage was presented as a showcase of current works to an intimate audience. This year the Get Out! crew are working towards a staged production – yet to be titled, to be presented in October 2014 in partnership with Cube 376, Frankston Arts Centre.
