NATIONAL DISABILITY INSURANCE SCHEME [NDIS]
As the NDIS is rolled out across Australia, participants will have greater opportunity to access artistic activity and its many benefits .
THE NDIS AND THE ARTS
SEE plays an important role in providing opportunities for people with disability to participate in the artistic and cultural life of their communities.
People enrolled in the NDIS can choose to participate in SEE's programs by having SEE written into their plan. The arts activities you select will be designed to help you achieve your goals on both a personal and a professional level.
While art and cultural participation is not mentioned directly in the NDIS, arts activities fall under the categories of social and community participation; skills development; pathways to employment; and health and wellbeing.
