Shape launches a 7 film documentation on the artists & creatives that Shape supports...

On Friday 13th December, Shape launched the Shape's Creatives film at the Canal Museum, London.

Throughout 2013, Shape's Creative Steps participants have been working with film maker and creative director David Hevey to produce 7 portrait films called 'Shape Creatives', exploring the creative journey of disabled people who work in the creative industries.

The purpose of this unique 7-film documentary-series is to highlight the 'barriers-removing' and 'artist-championing' work that Shape does, to bring disabled artists and creatives into the minds & venues of the UK arts public.
