Fund My Community has $1 million to improve the well-being of isolated, vulnerable or disadvantaged and are asking the South Australian community to help decide how to spend the money.

Tutti Arts is thrilled to have our project, MUTU DESIGN, chosen as one of the projects that could receive funding, but we need your support!  The projects which receive the most support from the community will be the projects that are funded.  Voting closes Monday 29 May 2017.

MUTU DESIGN is a social enterprise commercialising designs by young artists with complex disability. This project will benefit people with a disability or chronic health issue and those who are experiencing discrimination or disadvantage due to their personal circumstances. 

If successful the funding received will cover skilled designers to support the professional development of participants with complex disabilities, along with production costs for producing merchandise and website with online gallery for marketing.  The participants will adapt their artwork for various products (tee-shirts, socks, stools, pins, mugs) and learn how to present them in a professional manner to market online and in person in selected stores, galleries and design markets.

Along with the participants being connected with the community the project aims to provide independent income generated through the sale of their designs and merchandise and raise awareness that disabled artists have capacity to redefine contemporary design in innovative ways.  MUTU DESIGN will build on the success of our wearable art and assist artists in our programs as they become ready for the next step of taking their art to the world.
