Who are you?
‘Not My Place’ is an exhibition by artists involved in a unique inclusive arts program known as the Artist Run Initiative Newcastle (ARIN) during 2016. The artists have worked over the past year with Octapod as an Organisational Mentor, to build professional skills and networks to enable strong individual artistic identity and engagement in the local arts and cultural environment.

What are you doing at The Stage?
The exhibition title is a comment on perceptions and misconceptions of society and of the lived experience of disability, marginalisation and/or isolation which impacts so many of our lives.

Featuring works by Frazer Berick, Black Crow Walking, Donna Broadhead, Kate Burton, Alan Charlesworth, Justine Cogan, Nathan Dunne, Mackenzie Feighan, Dom Freestone, Trevor Freestone, Timothy Grant, Jordan Haitsma, Maree Hopkin, Elizabeth Mackenzie, Kell Miller, Jacqueline A Monti, Kerri Shying, Ingrid Stiertzel, Kaz Thorpe, Dane Tobias and Jon Shephard
