Able people star at MONA
A group of people supported by Able Australia in Tasmania recently had a chance to express themselves on the big stage at one of the nation’s leading arts facilities.
The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart recently invited Able Australia to run a number of day support programs at the museum’s new Community Centre - a unique piece of art in itself.
It was an opportunity too good to pass up and, with the support of music therapist Jane Baker, some of the people we support hit the stage to show the people of Mona what we are all about.
Michael (pictured with Jane) was one of several people to discover their inner performer and was thrilled to have the opportunity to belt out the Geelong Football Club song. The Mona team put on a spectacular light show to help everyone get into the groove. Members of the local community also joined in the fun with some children even joining in.
The day was a great success and Able will return next month to facilitate a Didgeridoo Relaxation program.
This is a great way for the wider community and the people we support to mix together in the hope and break down some social barriers.
Able Day on the Bay
A team of people with deafblindness had a rare opportunity to hit the waters of Port Phillip Bay last month as part of our Annual Able Day On the Bay event.
This year’s event was held on Saturday 19 July at Beaumaris Yacht Club and saw more than 30 people Able Australia supports enjoy boat rides, joy rides in the array of vintage cars and a delicious Christmas in July lunch with all the festive trimmings.
Our special thanks to Community Sector Banking who generously supported the day, as well as Jan Flude and her team of volunteers who worked closely with the Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron and Model T Ford Club to help make the day a spectacular success.
