In 2020, Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) received a grant to develop the leadership and capacity of women and girls with disability. WWDA called this project “LEAD”, which stands for Lead, Engage, Activate, Drive. As part of the project, on International Women’s Day 2021, we launched the WWDA LEAD Art Prize. We wanted to encourage our community of women, girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people to submit their artwork on the theme ‘We can all be leaders’ in a variety of accessible and creative formats.
In the gallery below, you can browse the artworks and entries we received from across the country and vote for your favourite as part of the People's Choice Award category! Image descriptions accompany each artwork.
To view a full list of the winning entries, announced at our Art Prize Awards Ceremony on Thursday 26th August 2021, please visit WWDA's website here.
