About the Competition
ArtWorks Together is an international competition, offering adults with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents to the entire world to gain the recognition they deserve.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate fully in arts and culture. We hope to raise the aspirations of artists with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism that want to work in the arts & cultural sector, and encourage ambition and talent to freely thrive through this opportunity to showcase their artwork through our exhibition.
Submissions are accepted from anywhere in the world and are completely free.
