Construction commences on space for artists with a disability

Construction has begun on a new arts centre for Tutti Arts, an organisation which supports artists with a learning or intellectual disability to develop their skills in theatre, visual arts, music, film, and digital media. Tutti also offers a community choral program and after school programs for children in drama, music and visual arts.

APP’s Julia Gentile and Paul Kirkwood are managing the project and contractor procurement, working alongside Grieve Gillett Andersen for the schematic design and Sarah Constructions on the construction works. BCA Engineering is providing building services advice. 

The APP project team is also supporting Tutti in the relocation of their business operations to the new facility. Tutti Arts is a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider and, after 22 years on the Minda campus, has outgrown their existing premises.  The move and redevelopment will consolidate all Tutti programs and services into a central hub.

As one of Australia’s leading disability arts organisations, it will also give Tutti greater presence in the community and allow space for programs to grow and new programs to be implemented. Tutti is currently fundraising in order to install a lift at the new arts centre. Anyone wishing to help can visit www.lifttuttiup.org.au 

The new Tutti Arts Centre will be completed in March 2020.
