Join us to celebrate International Day of People with Disability
4 December 2023, 6pm at Commbank Stadium Parramatta.
Tickets are $20 per person - no charge for carers.
Enjoy laughter of the Tim Ferguson kind, an art exhibition of the inclusive kind and action of the disability employment game-changing kind.
Top billing of the night is thought-provoking social and political satirist Tim Ferguson. Tim uses his whip-smart mind and comedic mastery to bring a modern perspective as he navigates life from a wheelchair, thanks to his MS.
Artful Art Show
There will be more than 50 artworks from the 2023 Artful Art Prize on display, and you'll have the chance to meet some of the winning emerging artists, and even purchase some artworks for yourself.
Employment panel discussion
You'll also hear from The Achieve Foundation who are working on an exciting and innovative project set to deliver 600 jobs in open employment for people with disability in the next 2 years and how you can get involved in this exciting initiative.
