Octapod is seeking artists, makers and those interested in the visual arts to be involved in a supported Artist Run Initiative throughout 2016. Learn new skills, meet other artists and find out more about the arts in Newcastle.  The group will also work towards a key performance, exhibition and/or presentation.

This group is for you if you are…an emerging or established artist with or without a disability or an individual with a disability who has a passion for the creative arts and want to develop your professional arts experience within a supported environment and live in Newcastle and have the time and commitment to be involved. If this sounds like you….you are invited to join this project! There is no cost to be involved.
