The Outsiders Art Festival & Other Creative Spaces

On facebook Dignity For Disability posted this:

This fabulous art festival is truly inspiring, and a great opportunity for aspiring disabled artists. Put it in your diary, you won’t be disappointed!

The Outsiders Festival – Adelaide 2010 will be held in September 2010.

“…”outsider art”, consists of works produced by people who for various reasons have not been culturally indocrinated or socially conditioned”… “Working outside fine art “system” (schools, galleries, museums and so on), these people have produced, from the depths of their own personalities … works of outstanding originality in concept, subject and techniques. They are works which owe nothing to tradition or fashion.”
Michel Thevoz, Curator of the Collection de l’Art Brut in Lausanne

Love this, I want to see more groups and individuals with opportunities to share their talents!! Visual and performance arts!!

Format Collective looks like another good way to do this! From their website:

Format Collective is an arts collective based in Adelaide, Australia.

We connect Adelaide’s underground art scenes. We’re fringier than the Fringe.

We put on arts events in and around Adelaide such as the annual Format Festival (including the Academy of DIY, Adelaide Zine Fair & the Street Dreams street art festival), the art show Big!, Renew Adelaide, and the alternative text workshops called Big Words. We are now also running the Format Zine Shop in the centre of Adelaide city.
