CreateAbility Events Network
expressing ourselves, connecting with others

CreateAbililty is a contemporary arts company based in Bendigo, Victoria.

We create new work across diverse visual and performance based practices. CreateAbility was established in 2002 with the purpose of providing opportunities for people with disability to engage with contemporary arts practice and to present their work publicly.

Since then we have developed partnerships and working relationships with artists, arts organisations and community groups that are interested in developing inclusive practices that represent the diversity of our community.

Golden City Support Services has acted as auspice for CreateAbility Events Network since its establishment. Golden City Support Services has a commitment to community-based support that enables individuals to be engaged and connected with their local (or identified) community.

Regular Saturday workshops include drama and visual arts.
