Venture Arts


Venture Arts charity is based in Hulme, Manchester. Our supported arts studio provides a stimulating, nurturing and social environment for phenomenally talented learning disabled artists. We are working hard to achieve our mission to give people with learning disabilities the chance to reach their potential as artists, workers, curators, critics, audiences, participants and advocates. Venture Arts participants learn new skills, gain confidence, have fun and make friends.

Our creative projects run 6 days a week; 49 weeks of the year with 1600+ sessions delivered annually for participants aged 8 to 80. In-house workshops are enjoyed by 100 participants each year and over 200 people take part in our community, schools and outreach programmes.

A growing number of our artists are achieving success; selling work, receiving commissions and exhibiting at prestigious venues across Manchester, the northwest and further afield.

By buying an ecorace balloon for Venture Arts, you’ll be supporting a Manchester charity that directly enriches the lives of our learning disabled participants and their families, friends and carers.
