Enhancing lives through Creativity.

Art Shape’s vision is that all people can choose to engage with the arts as equals.

We work to combat exclusion from the arts with particular focus on working with adults facing disabling barriers. We are driving social change by informing policy through research, identifying gaps in arts provision and stimulating the development of new possibilities in the arts. We believe in the power of the arts to change lives and improve health and wellbeing and are committed to creativity and imagination, equality and access.
