Bella Extension

Supporting accessible and inclusive programs and events

Bella Extension supports people with disability and access requirements to access all of our programs and events. An additional Bella Artist Educator will join your program or event for free, providing tailored and responsive support to facilitate accessible and inclusive experiences.

The entire range of Artist Educator-led School programs, Kids and Families programs, Young Creative events and Adult program are eligible for a Bella Extension.

Bella Extension is a free, however the regular cost of the program or event still applies.

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.
