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.
