For 40 years Shape Arts has been at the forefront of initiatives which ensure that the arts and cultural scene can be accessed and enjoyed by disabled people - and therefore by everyone. Disabled people face many barriers created by society, and at times so have we as an organisation, but if you watch the video above you'll be able to get a good idea of what we're doing to dismantle these disabling barriers.
As we're a charity, we rely on funding and donations from others, and so with your support we can keep up our good work towards putting an end to the exclusion of disabled people in the arts.
