Our Theme

The PossABLE THEME for 2017

This year our theme is a very direct call to muscle up, take charge and step into your power.

Your Power

The Your Power logo has been designed as a homage to the work of Roy Lichtenstein an extraordinary artist in the twentieth century. Below, we have outlined a short history and some of his very famous works.

The serious side of the call to take your power is that in the NDIS context if participants and people with a disability do not talk up for themselves and get a real plan that materially improves their lives they are really missing out.

IDEAS says,

“Do your own plan, don’t agree to a plan being done just on the phone, get help if you need it, and dream big.”

Make sure your plan shows your real-life goals and helps you with the steps you need to get there.

At PossABLE there will be a great collection of expert planners for you to meet and get down to the real-life improvements that reflect your choices.

Our Inspiration

Roy Lichtenstein
1923–1997

Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Fox Lichtenstein ( 1923 –1997) was an American pop artist. His work defined the premise of pop art through parody. Inspired by the comic strip, Lichtenstein produced precise compositions that documented while they parodied, often in a tongue-in-cheek manner.

His work was influenced by popular advertising and the comic book style. He described pop art as “not ‘American’ painting but actually industrial painting”. Whaam! and Drowning Girl is generally regarded as Lichtenstein’s most famous works, with Oh, Jeff…I Love You, Too…But… arguably third. Drowning Girl, Whaam! and Look Mickey are regarded as his most influential works.

Woman with Flowered Hat has held the record for highest Lichtenstein auction price since May 15, 2013, although that was recently beaten in 2015 by Nurse.
