    Hello there,
    Maybe it is because I am Londoner and used to diversity that I always find shocking how little of us, diverse artists that find our work in education our livelihood are presented here…

      Many thanks for your comment on AccessArt and we appreciate you sharing your thoughts on diversity.
      AccessArt is keen to represent a breadth of visual arts practice and believes strongly that being able to express one’s self through creative activity is a basic right for everyone.

      This project aimed to put the artist educator at the forefront and highlight artist led education as the inspiring, enabling and motivating vehicle that it is for creating exceptional outcomes and unique learning experiences.

      We would have liked to have more applications from men and from a broader demographic, more reflective of this wonderful mutli-cultural and diverse society that is Engand, and would be very keen to represent all.

      We would like to encourage artists and teachers, no matter from where they are, their gender, disability/ability or creed, to make contact with us so that we have the opportunity to share diverse practice and approaches to visual arts teaching and learning.

      The 40 Artist Educator Project was moulded by those who applied and the selection of artists was based on those (who applied) who we felt offered a breadth of practice and an original approach to delivering a learning experience – the basis for selection was excellence and good, clear documentation of workshops and not the demographics of the applicants.

      We were also looking for all disciplines across the visual arts to be represented and actively sought applicants from all over England and not just London (ACE is limited to England therefore applicants from Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland were excluded). We are delighted to have both rural and urban artists from all over England, represented in this project also a bredth of different aged artists. We hope dearly that artists will be inspired by this collection and make contact so that even more diversity can be represented on AccessArt to inspire the future generation of young artists.

      We would be very keen to hear from you and more about your work, so please do get in touch.
