Art Box London
Artbox was set up in 2011 to provide much needed opportunities for people with learning disabilities to access the arts and be included in their local community.
We run art workshops in Islington, go on trips to museums and galleries in Central London and provide exhibition and sales opportunities so that each of the artists can exhibit, sell and earn an income from their work.
We're a registered charity and social enterprise. This means that all of our profits go back to supporting people with learning disabilities.
Artists have the chance to sell their work through Artbox’s exhibitions and online shop. Profits are split with the artists, giving them an independently-earned income, while helping fund our workshops, exhibitions and trips.
Many people with learning disabilities find it hard to get paid work and for some artists, selling their art might be the only time they earn money. The impact this has on their self-esteem is huge.
