Evening Meeting


The Rotary Club of Melbourne and Arts Access Victoria collaboration through the exciting new “Ignite” Project.

Attached is a flyer promoting a Rotary Club of Melbourne event to be held at South Melbourne Town Hall on Thursday, 25 October from 6.00 – 7.30 pm.

The Arts Committee of the RCM is appreciative that the Evening Meeting group in the Club will be attending this event which launches the ‘Ignite’ Project, a collaboration between RCM and Arts Access Victoria.

Arts Access Victoria is the State’s leading arts and disability organisation which delivers community arts and cultural development programs for more than 2,000 people with a disability aimed at securing employment outcomes.

The partnership between RCM and Arts Access Victoria aims to support artists with a disability, for Club members to have a greater visibility of their work and provide a potential source of income through acquisition or leasing of high quality artworks. This focus aligns with RCM’s involvement in Welfare projects which is to assist and aid vocational opportunities for lesser advantaged groups in our community.

The project will be launched with:

Exhibition which features a display of a number of high quality artworks by disabled artists;

  • Catalogue from which particular works will be available for acquisition or lease;
  • Cocktail function fully catered by students from the Victorian College for the Deaf;
  • Music provided by musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music.

Club members, partners and their guests will be able to meet some of the artists and hear directly about the benefits of leasing or acquiring artworks.

The ‘Ignite’ Project is an important RCM initiative which will benefit a community of people in their artistic vocation and the support of the Evening Meeting Group at the exhibition is welcomed.

The cost of the event will be $40 per head, including refreshments to cover costs and it is hoped there may be a small surplus which will be a contribution to Arts Access Victoria.
