A journey can be a trip from another land, a visit to a new city, a walk by the river. A journey can be a trip to the shops or to visit friends. A journey can be the path taken through life, adversity or joy. A journey can be continuous or consist of many small steps.

ArtAbility 2008 will explore the theme of JOURNEY, the sights, sensations and memories that make every journey unique.
