🌟 Simone Flavelle Wins IMPACT Award! 🏆
We were so stoked when we heard that Disability Advocate Simone Flavelle received an IMPACT award from PAC Australia - APAX for her exceptional contributions to fostering a sustainable Arts and Disability practice in Western Australia.
Simone's unwavering advocacy has resulted in significant outcomes for disabled and neurodiverse artists, championing integration over segregation, and promoting inclusivity in the arts through My Place WA Ltd.
We've had the privilege of collaborating with Simone for several years, including for our 2022 Kolyang Lab where she played a pivotal role in bringing together a team of emerging disabled artists from around WA.
Please join us in congratulating Simone for her well-deserved recognition! Her passion and dedication continue to inspire us all.
