Venture Arts

​Venture Arts is a visual arts charity working with learning disabled people to create new contemporary visual art in supported studios. Our vision is a world in which learning disabled people are empowered, celebrated, included and valued in the arts, culture and society. We intend to shape a new cultural landscape where learning disabled people reach their potential as artists, curators, critics, audiences, participants and advocates. This blog will be used as a platform for artists, collaborators and community to share their creative practices, experiences, exhibition and events.
