HUNTER ARTSWORKER DATABASE
About the Hunter Artsworker Database
The Hunter Artsworker Database is for arts, disability and community organisations that wish to employ independent arts workers who have experience working with people with disability. It will be housed online on www.culturehunter.org, the cultural database for the Hunter region. The Database will list artists according to artform, with a link back to individual artist profiles on culturehunter.org, outlining their arts practice and experience working with people with disability. Registration is free.
The Octapod Association is a non-profit community organisation that supports the development of a vibrant creative sector in the Hunter region. We seek to provide opportunities for artists to develop their professional and creative skills, as well as support participation in the arts by broader communities. Our flagship project is the This Is Not Art Festival. We also manage www.culturehunter.org and support PODspace Gallery, an artist-run-initiative. We work with community organisations on arts based projects and since 2010 we have worked actively to support participation in the arts by people with disability.
