Eryn Gribble shares the stories of Alpha Art Studio.


"Boundaries are something for those living with disability that are constants. Sometimes it takes a little creativity to find ways to overcome them. I have been fortunate to learn more than I could ever teach from the people I have been humbled to work with. In this presentation I aim to share their stories alongside mine through my journey of community arts facilitation."
