I believe that there is a need for providing support for people with a talent in the arts to help them showcase their work and provide a safe environment for them to produce their work. I also believe that this could develop into a self financing venture so that if successful it will not stop because of cuts to funding which is often the case.
The vision I have for the future is for an inclusive artist studio and gallery for professional and amateur artists, including people on the autistic spectrum. The studio would be a place where individuals with ASD could mix with like-minded individuals and I also believe that this could help to reduce the sense of social isolation many individual adults with ASD experience and also provide an opportunity for them to improve social skills. The funding could be raised from renting out the studios and gallery therefore allowing people without the financial means to be able to access a studio to work in. My hope would be that this would lead to more opportunities for others who may not have the artistic talent but skills in other areas around running the gallery, reception work, research etc the list could be endless. So there is a choice, sit back and complain or stand up and get involved. (anyone with some spare premises would be most welcome) Brin Morris.

UPDATE WE NOW HAVE OUR OWN FLOATING GALLERY AND THE STUDIOS TO WORK IN. THE VISION IS COMING TRUE
