The Inala day programs run out of Cherrybrook Day Service Dulkara, offer participants opportunities to develop artistic skills like weaving, pottery and painting, under the guidance of staff who themselves are artists.

“Our staff are amazing, not just supporting our participants but helping develop them into artists in their own right,” she said.

David was one of five Inala artists who entered the competition and with other artists having their work sold during the Show. All are looking forward to entering again, along with other local art competitions.

“Our belief in the unique abilities and contributions of each person means we provide each person with opportunities for personal growth, creativity, skills development, independence and community involvement,” said Alexandra.

Inala is planning a local exhibition in Cherrybrook for later in the year.
