Meeting Places: Mangkaja and Creative Growth

Meeting Places: Mangkaja and Creative Growth

About

Creative Growth is pleased to announce Meeting Places: Mangkaja and Creative Growth, a groundbreaking exhibition that pairs Aboriginal artists from Western Australia alongside Creative Growth artists with disabilities. The exhibition is one of the first of its kind in the world and highlights the aesthetic and cultural connections between divergent populations of artists whose work is deeply connected to community and to non-academic artistic traditions.

Both Creative Growth and Mangkaja foster strong communities. Creative Growth is the oldest and largest center for artists with developmental disabilities in the world and has been at the forefront of advocating for work by developmentally disabled artists to be included in the contemporary art world. The organization provides visual art support and studio space to more than 150 artists with developmental disabilities every week, where they are encouraged to become a part of the community of artists while concurrently producing work that is a personal and singular form of communication with the world.
