Transurban presented a $3,000 grant to create a public art street mural outside of Studio ARTES Hornsby headquarters, having recently been rebuilt after a fire destroyed the community centre in April 2016.

Studio ARTES, a unique organisation that provides tailor-made creative activities and life skills for adults living with a wide range of disabilities, were pleased when announced as a recipient of a Transurban Community Grant, which supports local not-for-profit groups.

Studio ARTES CEO Deb Sazdanoff said Transurban’s grant had enabled their group to do something amazing.

“They have had the opportunity to work with an extremely talented professional graphic artist to develop individual pieces of work to contribute to that mural,” Mrs Sandanoff said.

Member for Hornsby Matt Kean MP was on hand to present the $3,000 grant to the team at Studio ARTES saying that it is a beautiful piece of work that has been a real talking point of people who pass by, and community groups who use the wonderful facility.

Transurban’s NorthConnex Project Director Daniel Banovic is proud to support the communities in and around the project area.

“We believe it’s important to support the communities in and around our roads. Studio ARTES plays an important role in showcasing and fostering the potential for creativity among people living with disability in the community and we are pleased to be able to support them.

“We are very proud of our grants program, which has provided more than $380,000 to deserving not-for-profit organisations across Australia since November 2013,” Mr Banovic said.
