March Project Spotlight | Inclusive art making

This month we look at projects which demonstrate inclusivity in the arts. These creators are providing opportunities specifically for people with lived experience of disability to showcase their creative talents on stage and to authentically represent themselves on screen.


Fostering an all-encompassing and equitable community in Sydney, the Umbrella School of Music are staging a new production of CAMP ROCK. The production pairs an able-bodied person and a person with disability together to share costumes, lines, solos, and parts to create a compelling storytelling experience.

Donations will be used to sponsor cast members needing financial assistance to participate, staff wages, venue hire, and insurances.




Pickled is a film that breaks away from conventional storytelling and explores themes of female friendship, feminism, breaking stereotypes and biases, and the human tendency to find humour even in tense situations. The film will mostly be signed in AUSLAN, as this is how Cat and Toni (the main characters) communicate.

Donations will be used for wages, script consultations by Auslan Stage Left, production/set/costume design, catering, distribution, and logistics.





Sing Sing Sing is Queensland’s first choir for people living with dementia, and for those who support and care for them. The choir aims to tackle the social prejudice and stigma associated with dementia through regular performances, and by hosting events for family, friends and community members.

Donations will be used to cover musician costs and fees, venue hire, performance overheads, catering and appropriate insurances and licenses
