Ability Options’ Front Up is a Western Sydney based Arts and Cultural program. Front Up provides a vibrant and accessible studio space, workshops, and professional development opportunities for artists with disability, including those experiencing a mental health condition.
Ability Options founded Front Up Studios to facilitate the important inclusion of people with disability in the arts & culture communities, creating fair access, and opportunities for training and ongoing career development.
Front Up provides a multi-layered level of arts and cultural education, mentorship, exhibition opportunities, experience, and career development opportunities for beginner, emerging and established artists.
Front Up’s partnership with Sydney’s diverse arts and culture communities and leading peak bodies offers collaboration and direct access to galleries and institutions such as the Art Gallery of NSW, Artspace and Western Sydney cultural spaces including Blacktown Arts.
The Front Up Studios’ programs, community and partnerships promote artistic vibrancy and social inclusion by connecting artists with direct pathways for access within the arts and culture sector.
