“I learnt about Art at Redinc.
The mediums I like to work with Include paint, print, and texta. The artists that inspire me the most are comic book artists, manga artists and some graffiti artists. I am inspired to make art from pop culture, characters, courses and movies.
Art makes me feel good, happy, content, joyful, a little bit scared, a little bit confused, surprised and even a little bit silly. The message I find in art is to use art.”
Nathan Gooley, 2014
Nathan went on to exhibit his Super Heroes works at the Lismore Regional Gallery in 2016.
Many artists with a disability have found their spiritual home at REDinc. We are region renowned for our strong arts focus, with many REDinc. artists going on to exhibit locally, regionally, nationally and internationally (from New Zealand to Europe!) – selling their work as they go! Our artists’ work has even been featured on ANZ’s Visa Card! Pretty awesome, huh?
We have an amazing group of resident artists who run a range of Creative Arts workshops. Take your pick!
REDinc. provides quality art studios in both Lismore and Mullumbimby where we can support our artists in the creation of their artwork.
Our philosophy is that Art is not taught, but rather people are encouraged to find their own artistic voice and to pursue themes of personal interest and meaning. Artists are encouraged to stay true to their unique style and subjects that truly mean something to them; so that, over time, their creative style becomes as unique and recognisable as their signature.
The aim of the studio is to assist individuals to become as independent as possible in their work, with just enough support to enable each person reach a deep engagement with, and enjoyment, of the artistic process. We believe our Artists have the right to quality arts practice, in a quality arts studio environment, using quality materials.
REDinc’s music program gives the opportunity for singing, song writing, busking, band skills, performance skills and the opportunity to learn a musical instrument (usually one-on-one support offered). Check out the awesome Brotherhood of the Blues who started out at REDinc.
We believe that providing a quality art environment for our Artists has a positive impact on the community as a whole.
