- What’s on
Last year your support made it possible for us to assist many local disabled artists, including former outback truck driver turned visual artist ‘Bundy’ Bannerman of Pink Bear Art – who you can always recognise wearing a signature pink shirt.
You guys got me back on track with art and put me in the right direction… (I’m) so glad to have improved with you.– Artist Bundy Bannerman
When we first met Bundy in 2022, he had been bouncing around arts organisations with no definitive help, and as an older disabled artist, wasn’t able to access the support available to early-career artists. This left him understandably frustrated, exhausted and feeling despondent.
Two of Bundy’s artworks – one depicting his time as an outback truck driver, and the other depicting time spent at a local pool.
He finally came to Access2Arts where we were able to assist him with grant applications, digital skills, and help with his presence on social media. He also won a place in our ‘The Exquisite Familiar’ artist program, which provided skill development, networking with other disabled artists, and the opportunity to exhibit work at the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA) and the Museum of Discovery (MOD.).

We are a small but mighty team at Access2Arts, and every dollar means more services we can deliver, so with your support we can continue to help Bundy, and others just like him, achieve even more in their artistic careers.
This June, support Access2Arts so we can continue to make a real and lasting difference in disabled artists lives through education, support and referral services!
You guys go out of your way to do anything, to make anything possible for us.– Bundy
