Return to news & stories Arrow pointing to the right

AN EXHIBITION will be held in Tamworth this month to promote diversity and inspiration.

The artworks of people with a disability from across the state will be displayed at Tamworth’s Ray Walsh House this month, as part of the annual art competition hosted by Challenge Community Services.

This year the disability provider has encouraged people with a disability to submit artwork for the annual art competition, with this year’s theme being Art Safari.

From tall giraffes to the regal lion and zebras too, there was no limit to what was submitted, with competition organisers reporting 211 entries this year.

Locals are encouraged to head to the Tamworth Regional Council building during business hours from Tuesday to see the works for themselves, with voting days to be held on December 1 and 2.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday, December 14, with a pool of $2500 in prize money to be won.

About Challenge Community Services

60 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disabilities. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 2500 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 600 staff, 85 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
In the spirit of Reconciliation, Challenge Community Services acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this country, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs, and to Elders both past and present.
