Nulsen Disability Services has been the proud principal partner of the As We Are Art Awards for almost two decades. The annual As We Are Art Awards are a state-wide art award and exhibition open to all Western Australian artists with intellectual disability (aged 18+).
As We Are was initiated in 2002 as a one-off art award and exhibition in 2002 by Rosalind Lewis from Citizen Advocacy Perth West. Since the resounding success of that first year, the event has grown to become a prestigious and significant yearly event on the WA arts calendar.
As We Are now coordinates a range of initiatives for WA artists with intellectual disability, including:
- An annual Art Award and Exhibition
- A select annual exhibition at a Perth art gallery
- A Disability and the Arts Network and respective annual Forum for artists, their family, friends and support workers, as well as arts workers and administrators
- A quarterly e-newsletter, detailing current news, opportunities and event.
