Venture Arts is an award-winning visual arts charity based in Manchester.  They support learning disabled people to reach their full potential through arts and culture.  Their aim is for learning disabled people to be empowered, included and valued in the arts, culture and society. They exhibit our artists’ work regularly, in high profile galleries and exhibitions in the North West and nationally.

Each year they deliver over 1,700 in house visual art sessions. Their studio is a social, safe and inspiring environment where their team of professional artist tutors nurture individual talents and creativity, supporting all their participants to discover and develop their unique artistic identity. They also run work schemes which help learning disabled people to work and volunteer in cultural and educational environments.

Venture Arts worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They commissioned the fantastic artist Justin P Lees to create a mixed-media artwork for the project.
