Help Us Fly The AccessArt Bird!

What is the AccessArt Bird?


Back in 1990, before AccessArt came into existence, a child in a school in Sheffield made a bird out of wire as part of a sculpture workshop inspired by Egyptian art. The bird was photographed, and years later in 1999 when Sheila and I were looking for a logo for our new organisation, I fished out the photo of the wire bird. Our designer turned the image into a vector and the AccessArt bird was born! 

What Does The AccessArt Bird Stand For?

Since our formation our little bird has flown around the world, carrying the message of AccessArt to audiences of all ages. We believe everyone has the right to be creative, and we can all play our part in enabling creativity in others (and ourselves). AccessArt aims to inspire and enable high quality, open-ended, creative exploration for all. 

AccessArt is a UK Charity and thanks to income from memberships we are proud to be a self-sustaining arts organisation. We pay all contributors for their contribution to the AccessArt pot of resources which benefit the whole community.
