Director Biography

Prism Arts was established in 1987 by a group of five artists committed to developing opportunities for excluded people to participate in the arts.

For over 35 years Prism Arts has been developing and delivering arts projects which are accessible to everyone. We are based in Carlisle but works throughout Cumbria.

We predominantly work creating visual arts and theatre productions with people with additional learning needs. Our visual art is showcased in exhibitions in galleries and public spaces and our productions are performed in theatres, schools and community spaces.

Prism Arts’ mission is to deliver arts programmes that empower people with disabilities to drive their own creative journey and develop as artists, leaders and advocates for change.

Our goal is to develop and create diverse artists, who discover their voice and then develop the confidence to use it. We believe in progression and development of all our people through the arts.
