Shape Arts

< Back to directory


Shape Arts is a disability-led arts organisation which works to improve access to culture for disabled people by providing opportunities for disabled artists, training cultural institutions to be more open to disabled people, and through running participatory arts and development programmes.
In addition to this they provide access auditing and training services to arts organisations. Working across the UK and internationally they deliver consultancy that works towards the improvement of cultural services for all disabled people. They find organisations who engage with them are better equipped and more confident in welcoming and working with diverse groups of all kinds, whether as participants, employees or artists.
All of Shape’s work is informed by the Social Model of Disability.
The National Disability Arts Collection and Archive (NDACA) is a £1-million digital archive chronicling the history of disability arts in the UK, available to the public at
See Shape Arts website for more information about many aspects of working in the Arts.
