How far could you ride in a wheelchair on your own? Can you find enough change in your wallet for a cup of coffee, blindfolded? Lip read a message and then translate it to someone else? Can you paint a picture without using your hands? Come and find out!

Experience a fundraising challenge where riders use a wheelchair to navigate a circuit of physical and mental challenges set to test their ability. Also enjoy: a delicious a sausage sizzle, stalls selling Studio ARTES merchandise, face painting, and you can even try your hand at weaving! All are welcome!

The event, now in its 7th year, is a collaboration with Hornsby Shire Council and Westfield Hornsby and will be publicly opened by Philip Ruddock, Mayor of Hornsby Shire, who will then ride in a team with Matt Kean MP. Julian Leeser MP will also be part of the event.

One of the teams riding on the day are the Sydney FC fan team of Mel, Dan and Nathan led by Sydney FC right back Rhyan Grant. Rhyan said, “My good friends Carol and Heidi have worked at Studio ARTES for a long time, and I am always amazed by the work they do and how they talk about the talents of the people who go there. When I was asked to be involved I didn’t hesitate. It’s a great cause and I’m looking forward to it.”

Attendees can also enjoy performances throughout the day by Studio ARTES members, Turramurra High School Sound Studio, and PCYC President Peter Kirkwood on the didgeridoo.

The festival is driven by the Studio ARTES PR Group of nine adults with disabilities who have taken on the challenge of working towards improving their community and advocating for people with disabilities within it.

Driven by the values of inclusion, equity and respect, Studio ARTES offers creative programs with a focus on visual arts, performing arts, life skills and employment skills. Studio ARTES encourages and celebrates the individuality and creativity of every participant, and builds connections with the broader community to increase opportunities for people with a disability to be involved in wider social, educational and vocational networks.

We hope you can make it!
