Celebrating Ability – Art Competition

In recognition of the International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) on Monday, 3 December, Northern Health Disability Working Group (DWG) is running an art competition titled ‘Celebrating Ability’.

Operations Director, Community, Gillian Dickman, says it underlines Northern Health’s commitment to promoting respect and inclusion, and celebrating individual differences.

“We are encouraging teams, wards and departments to be as creative as possible in interpreting this year’s theme – Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality,” she says.

Celebrated internationally, IDPwD is a United Nations official day that aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability.

The competition welcomes all art genres/media – e.g. photography, painting, sculpture, animation.

The winning team entry will collect $100 in addition to attractive individual prizes.

Closing date for entries is Sunday, 2 December, so get creating!
