Congratulations to QUT Centre for Justice member A/Prof Janice Rieger on some high impact success this week.
Janice is part of a team led by A/Prof Bree Hadley and including A/Prof Michael Whelan, that received an ARC Special Research Initiative (SRI) Award of $227,131 to create the first archive looking at disability arts in Australia. The research team hopes this curated record capturing a half century’s worth of work will show students, industry, and society at large how impactful this body of work has been, is, and can be if artists are offered greater opportunities in the mainstream in the future.
