Who We Are

Hands on Art is dedicated to the creative development of individuals and their communities.


Merger with Communify Qld.

In late 2018, Hands on Art merged with Communify Qld, with the intention of growing and expanding Hands on Art’s community connections and arts-based community reach.

Communify’s mission is to strengthen the community’s capacity by responding to the diverse needs and interests of all its members.

Communify’s merger with Hands on Art is a recognition of the core creative needs of communities, and together both Hands on Art and Communify will be able to strengthen the capacity of individuals and groups through creative exploration and experience.

Through Art we Grow..

Hands on Art is about people, art, nature, creativity and beauty.

 We provide programs and services that inspire creativity, personal and community growth and connections to nature.

Hands On Art is innovative, accessible and committed to helping people and communities everywhere.

Hands on Art values the Artist as an agent and catalyst for giving others the means to discover and develop their own creative life.
