Arts Connect creates new opportunities for learning disabled people to take part in arts activities in their communities.
Get Connected events are lively, interactive networking events for learning disabled people, carers, service managers, artists & cultural organisations. We can all learn from each other and get connected.

Get Creative short courses and masterclasses offer an opportunity to try new things, meet new people and work with professional artists on exciting creative projects in drama, digital arts, music, dance, spoken word, photography, craft and making.

BOOKS BEYOND WORDS
These supported book groups use books, eBooks and other resources for people who find it easier to understand pictures than words. Books Beyond Words use pictures to tell stories that engage and empower people, on themes such as love and relationships, health, death and dying, and crime.
