Action Space Arts

£8,000 grant towards a one-year project for adults with profound and multiple learning difficulties and complex needs.

Working with Peperfield Day Centre, Action Space Arts provided weekly sessions in a variety of media, culminating in an exhibition of work at the Lumen Centre in Camden.

A support worker from the Day Centre reported: “Of all the groups/organisations that the people we support are involved with I would have to say that Action Space is the most progressive – I admire the way that Action Space encourages people to define themselves as artists, to think about their own personal development as artists and to stretch themselves creatively. Reinventing themselves as artists and being seen by others as artists, which is strengthened by the exhibition, has a very positive impact on their self-esteem.”
