Venture Arts is a progressive visual arts organisation based in Hulme, Manchester that strives for learning disabled people to engage with and be recognised in art and culture. We work with learning disabled artists to create and show new visual art work.
Our vision is to see learning disabled people play a valued and valuable role within arts and culture as artists, critics, audiences, advocates and workers. To this effect we deliver over 1000 visual arts workshops per year working with over 200 people and run work schemes which help learning disabled people to work and volunteer in cultural and educational environments. We showcase the work of our artists locally, nationally and internationally.
As well as providing for disabled adults Venture Arts also run a number of outreach workshops aimed at engaging children with disabilities.
