The print series marks a longstanding partnership and collaboration between Venture Arts and The Whitworth.

Venture Arts Director, Amanda Sutton: “We are so pleased that we are expanding our partnership with the Whitworth, who have supported us in championing the work of learning disabled and neurodiverse artists from the north of England over many years: through supported residencies, to acquiring one of these works for their fine art collection. We’re thrilled to see seven of our artists’ work will be produced into 10 limited edition prints – they are all wonderful and I’d love to see each and every one of them on my own walls!”

Alistair Hudson, Director at The Whitworth, University of Manchester: “This is the latest project in the longstanding collaborative relationship between Venture Arts and The Whitworth. Our partnership is driven by a shared understanding of the importance of creativity for all, working with the broadest range of artists in the most innovative ways, to ensure life is as gloriously rich and complex as it can be.  We’re proud to be able to publish and share work of such quality and joy.”
