The Superpowers of US

The Superpowers of US expresses the pride, joy and excitement artists experienced whilst creating in the Multicap Centre of Creative Arts (COCA) program. The COCA program supports a range of art and performance activities, offering creative options for artists of all ages living with a disability throughout Queensland to be able to present and promote their skills to audiences everywhere. ‘The Superpowers of US’ was exclaimed by one of the artists while installing his team’s work so it seemed a fitting title for the exhibition.
