Bella Extension

Supporting inclusive learning and events



Bella Extension offers free and flexible support for children and young people with disability and access requirements.

Additional Bella Artist Educators will provide tailored learning strategies and resources to support the specific physical, intellectual, learning and sensory access requirements of individuals participating in MCA Learning programs. The entire range of Artist Educator-led School and Kids and Families programs are eligible for a Bella Extension. Advance bookings are essential and the program is subject to availability.

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.
