‘Teena’s Bathtime’ is the fourth annual Bella Commission. The commission series invites artists to realise an interactive space for people with specific needs, including those with physical, intellectual, emotional or behavioural disability.
The Jackson Bella Room is situated in the National Centre for Creative Learning at the MCA.

The MCA Bella program was established in 1993 through the generosity of MCA patrons Dr Edward Jackson AM and Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM, and the Jackson family in memory of their late daughter and sister Belinda.
