The learning Creative Skills was founded in 2017 as a Charity registered with the NDIS and with the Australian Charity and Not For Profit Commission with focus on improving the lives of people with an intellectual disability to participate in vocational, recreational and supported employment in arts activities so participants can produce and exhibit their own work.
We provides vocational arts activities and disability supported employment to people with an intellectual disability as a way of developing skills, self esteem while participants gain work experience.
Our service is structured to operate as a social enterprise so participants can practice and enjoy art as a recreational activity.
Participants will also learn employable skills and practice the art of all form in a supported employment model.
Participants will be able to purchase on-the-job employment support using their NDIS plan to access social enterprises, and the open employment opportunity that we provide.
Meaning revenue derived from the program’s activities is invested back into the program to increase its artistic and social outcomes. Income derived from the sale and exhibition of artwork directly benefits the artist.
Participants will be able to develop and receive recognition for their artistic practices in a supported studio spaces, exhibit to sell their works, and earn an income.
