Description

Art Works understands everyone is different and everyone has the right to work and live a fulfilled life.  We are taking a fresh approach on adult care by supporting individuals to make their own choices around our creative projects. 

Art Works is a community and arts organisation. We are working together to provide quality day and work opportunities within the creative industries for adults with learning disabilities, autism, sensory disabilities and physical disabilities. Art Works is run by qualifed care managers with backgrounds in teaching, art, and media. This year we are the Mayor of Sheffields chosen charity.

Those who join Art Works can expect to build crucial life skills and out and about in the community.  Working towards employment in the creative industries Art Works provides group work placements at venues like Sheffield Documentary Festival, Site Gallery, Wentworth Woodhouse, Wildlife Trust and volunteering positions that are accompanied by workshops with guest artists, filmmakers, animators followed by service user gallery screenings, city centre exhibitions, and film festival participation.

We will support you to be independent, healthy, and have an active role in the community. Our new service is running Monday to Friday 9am until 4pm we are creating something special and we want you to be a part of it!!!  Free Taster days are available so please get in touch.
