Our friends at Arts Access Victoria have announced the inaugural Stella Young Award recognising Australian artists with disability (aged 16 – 30) who have demonstrated significant impact or achievement in disability activism through their artistic practice in comedy, performing arts or screen culture.
The late Stella Young hosted eight seasons of the Antenna Award winning disability culture program No Limits on Channel 31. C31 was proud to support the broadcast of No Limits as ground breaking Community TV that challenged the representation of disability in Australian screen culture. Stella went on to become a passionate and forthright advocate for disability issues.
The Stella Young Award aims to support the professional development of young artists with a disability and ensures we are building the next generation of activists, driven by creativity and passion to transform our society,
