Centre of Creative Arts (COCA)

Centre of Creative Arts

Multicap's Centre of Creative Arts (COCA) is an active and functional artistic program that offers people with disability an opportunity to develop their creative abilities and potential, through a variety of visual, tactile and performing arts. COCA celebrates and promotes that the great creative work created by artists with complex needs is integral to the artistic and cultural life of Australia.

Artists with a disability are under-represented and under-employed in the creative sector. The COCA program offers creative pathways for people with complex needs from arts training through to social enterprise. The unique perspectives and experiences of artists with disability can transform the way the art is presented and enhance audience connection. It also encourages students to work independently, and collaborate with Arts Facilitators and others.

Meet some of our fantastic COCA Arts Facilitators here.

Delivered in 12-week semesters, students learn how to conceptualise art projects, develop products and artworks, right through to exhibiting creations and exploring employment and entrepreneurial pathways. 

For more information about current and upcoming COCA programs, please contact us: email coca@multicap.org.au or call us on 1300 135 886.
