Interact Learning Services

In 2009 Australian Print Workshop was invited to undertake a printmaking project at Interact Learning Services centre in Fairfield, Victoria.

Interact Learning Services delivers developmental activities and programs to people with a disability in the Melbourne metropolitan area.

The APW project was designed specifically for adults with an intellectual disability.

Through a series of four half-day printmaking workshops, held fortnightly, and working with an average of 5 participants (+ carers) each session, APW Printers assisted workshop participants to explore the print mediums of perspex engraving and monotype.

A selection of works produced in the workshops was exhibited at the Fairfield Library.

This project effectively demonstrated the benefits of a collaborative partnership in achieving positive outcomes from a project designed to make the arts more accessible to people of all abilities.
