ArtWorks has launched their first competition: ArtWorks Together International Learning Disability and Autism Arts Competition 2021. This is a brand new competition offering people with learning disabilities and autism the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents to the entire world.

We hope to raise the aspirations of artists with Learning Disabilities and Autism that want to work in the arts & cultural sector, and encourage ambition and talent to freely thrive through this opportunity to showcase their artwork through our exhibition.
The competition will conclude in an exhibition at the prestigious Wentworth Woodhouse in South Yorkshire, a glorious Grade I listed stately home. The artists selected will exhibit their work in March 2021 as well as an online 3D exhibition which can be viewed worldwide.
