Kurrajong Waratah, a local organisation established in 1957 with the aim of meeting the needs of people with a disability and their families, partnered with Eastern Riverina Arts, the peak body for arts and cultural development across the Eastern Riverina in 2013 to enable local artists to collaborate with a member of the community with a disability and produce an exhibition entitled ‘8 Artists’.
"8 Artists is a model for collaboration between artists with and without disability that extends beyond the traditional mentor-mentee relationship. It shifts the power dynamic to one of equal collaboration where artists create shared work that is reflective of each other’s skills, ideas and practice." Sarah McEwan, Curator of 8 Artists.
