Art is being used as a tool of celebration for International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3 in Whangarei.

Students of NorthAble LYNKZ and Kre8Hope Stepping Stones to Art are collaborating in an exhibition titled ‘Linking Stones’. Students of both courses have been working hard to create their art works and having them on display to the public will demonstrate the day’s theme; of removing barriers that limit accessibility and participation. Participating artists have an intellectual, sensory or physical disability - or a combination - and have used a range of media to express themselves.

Northable LYNKZ is a vocational disability programme for 47 disabled participants. Kre8Hope Stepping Stones to Art is a series of workshops which has been running for 3 years providing people with disabilities and life challenges the opportunity to express themselves through the creation of art with the support of professional tutors.

The Linking Stones exhibition will run from 10 - 3pm from Monday 3 December to Thursday 6 December at the Quarry Arts Centre, 21 Selwyn Ave. Everyone is welcome to come and see the art produced by this group of dedicated artists.

Celebrations for the International Day will also be held at the Town Basin on Monday 3 December for the Getting Out There Day of have-a-go activities for people with disabilities being organised by the Tiaho Trust.
