Caring for Artists, Caring for Communities


As artists are called on more and more to work in areas such as creative recovery, health and with communities, we also need to have conversation about how to care for these artists who are caring for our communities.

In May 2021 The Cad Factory started a partnership with Shoalhaven Health and Arts by hosting an event which brought together a group of artists to have these much needed conversations.



Hear about our recent journey to Barkindji country in Menindee with students from the Clontarf Academy Narrandera.

Life on the sandhills

More than 50 families lived on the Sandhills on the outskirts of Narrandera between 1912-1970s. Artists from some of these families have created artworks which aim to capture some of this important Narrandera history. These artworks have been gifted to the Narrandera Shire Library and will be permanently displayed for the community.


Inclusive fashion sale

In partnership with Aestheletic and Boundless Possibilities, you can buy inclusive fashion apparel to support learning disabled artists from Narrandera and Manila.
