Artworks is a not for profit creative arts organisation, inspiring and helping adults with learning disabilities to achieve their potential and develop important life skills through creative workshops and placements.
We support our artists to create and exhibit their artwork, participate in work placements within the creative industries and most importantly have fun!
What we do
At ArtWorks we focus on collaborative practice and teamwork,
whilst assisting our artists to play an active role within their community. ArtWorks aims to challenge peopleʼs perceptions of learning disabilities through celebrating creativity and the ambition of our artists.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate fully in arts and culture. We hope to raise the aspirations of artists with learning disabilities and autism that want to work in the arts & cultural sector. We encourage ambition and talent to freely thrive through creative projects, collaboration and community activities. Our programmess and activities are designed to be a catalyst that helps our artists reach their goals and fulfill their potential.
With an ever-growing group of artists, ArtWorks has three sites across Sheffield and Rotherham, giving us the opportunity to create all types of art work as well as film, dance, drama and more. Not only do we offer a variety of creative sessions, but we also provide activities to help promote independence, health and wellbeing.
