Venture Arts are bringing together ten influential creative organisations and individuals to inspire and share best practice about making our cultural landscape a more rich and welcoming place, with learning disabled people at its heart.

MAKING THE CASE | SYMPOSIUM marks the completion of the latest round of Venture Arts’ Cultural Enrichment Programme. The programme was devised in recognition of how very few learning disabled people currently access cultural venues. Supported by the national lottery players via The Heritage Lottery Fund, Venture Arts works closely with Manchester based museums, theatres and galleries to co-create engagement programmes tailored to each participant.

Our partners include; Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester Museum, the Whitworth, People’s History Museum and HOME Manchester.

Joining Venture Arts will be experts in the field; Actionspace and Royal Academy of Arts (London) | Esther Fox – History of Place (UK) | Bluecoat – Blue Room and Jade French, Arts for Advocacy Collective (Liverpool) | Holly Grange, the Whitworth (Manchester) | Autism for the Arts (Manchester) | Manchester Museum (The University of Manchester) | HOME (Manchester) | Royal Exchange Theatre.

This will be a day of thought provoking open conversation, debate and sharing to encourage change.
