Nexus

Nexus is an eight-week fully subsidised professional development program for young (18-26) artists and arts workers with disability.

Led by AAV's lived experience artist and producer Heidi Everett and creative producer Phil Noack, the program involves:  

  • guest speakers; 
  • building your profile;
  • developing confidence in your artistic voice;
  • connecting in with arts industry; 
  • building support for your creative projects and aspirations; and
  • how to navigate Melbourne's arts scene. 

The structure of the program includes both group and one-on-one sessions, with lots of interactive learning and opportunities for practice placements.

“The [Nexus] program built confidence in my abilities as an artist and mental health advocate, and spurred my involvement in community projects I previously didn’t feel ‘qualified’ or ‘adequate’ enough to pursue,” said 2018 Nexus participant Romy Durrant in an article for SBS Life.
