Join Our Artistic Programme

I know I belong, it’s like family – Dominic Bennett, Venture Arts Artist

Our dynamic artistic programme provides a social and stimulating environment for learning disabled people to develop their artistic talents. Our projects are learner-led. By this we mean that the you, the artist, can lead with the ideas and we help them become a reality.

How do I join?

Open 6 days a week we offer 20 accessible arts sessions per week led by our fab and friendly professional artists.


Our programme is developed for all abilities and interests providing a variety of subjects and mediums aimed at giving each participant new progressive experiences of art and the creative process.

“I joined Venture Arts about 6 months ago, I like the building and doing textiles and photography. I do work experience at Manchester museum and I’m going to do a speech on 21st July there about the archery. I’ve invited people from work, my cousins and my friends, Laura, Jo and Jackie.” – Artist, Venture Arts



Before you join, we will invite you to come to the studio for a chat and meet some of the other artists you will be working alongside. We can also talk about what interests you so we can match you with the right workshop for you.
