So you want my arts job: Disability Art Centre, CEO

If you believe that art should be accessible to all, have a sense of humour and is a great communicator, working with artists with disabilities might just have the stars aligned.

Based in Sydney, Studio A is an enterprise which supports artists with intellectual disabilities and tackles the barriers they face in pursuing a career in the visual arts. As CEO and Artistic Director, Gabrielle Mordy is a strong advocate for these artists, where her everyday job includes everything from curating to delivering presentations to corporate supporters.

A practising artist herself, Mordy is a firm believer in the power of art to translate experiences across cultures. With a background in Fine Arts and Anthropology, she was awarded the Churchill Scholarship and an Australia Council Career Development Award to undertake international research into the supported studio sector in 2014.
