Able Arts CIC provides autistic people and people with learning disabilities experience in the creative industries. Artists get the opportunity to sell the art they create and receive 50% of the profit.
Founded in 2020, Able Arts initially provided discounted art workshops for people with additional support needs. Participating artists had the opportunity to sell their artwork. Throughout the pandemic, Able Arts changed their model and offered art competitions to local people. Artists with learning disabilities and autism participating in these contests have been able to sell their art, build their confidence and develop employability skills.
Able Arts worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They commissioned the fantastic artist Georgia Yuill to create a drawing for the project.
