With the support of Newham Council and the National Lottery Community Fund we run a year-round Clubs programme of creative activities for Disabled people, mostly via Zoom with additional telephone support. The Clubs programme is led by mid-career artist Alison Marchant, and Clubs are facilitated by Alison and other mid-career Disabled artists, working alongside emerging and community artists. We believe that everyone has something to teach and something to learn. We are Newham-based, but welcome participants from outside the borough.
All of our activities are FREE. We do not ask for ‘proof’ of disability, and do not require participants to attend every week. Our Ground Rules provide further details of what is expected of participants, and our Code of Practice for Personal Assistance provides details of what is expected of supporters.
Participants and volunteers under the age of 26 can earn a nationally recognised Arts Award qualification through taking part. We are currently exploring ways in which we can offer certificates and qualifications for over-25s.
