We are thrilled to announce and welcome a new cohort of artists into our 2022 Kolyang Artist Lab.
This will be the third year the Lab has been delivered. In our first two years we focussed on emerging culturally diverse artists. In 2022 we have invited ten emerging disabled artists, working in any genre or medium, to join in the alumni of this important sector development initiative.
“To continue the legacy of this initiative, we wanted to extend the impact and outcomes to other diverse communities of artists within our sector. As a fiercely proud disabled man myself, I couldn’t think of a better intervention than this – 10 incredible artists in the formative stages of their artistic and creative careers with lived experience of disability coming together to explore new ideas and concepts as a cohort. The Lab provides each artist a fee, space, resources and the time to collaborate or work independently in a safe environment.” shared Performing Lines WA’s Senior Producer, Jeremy Smith.
