Established in 1994 by a diverse group of artists, The Art House places equality of access and higher diversity in contemporary visual arts practice at the core of all our programmes.

When it comes to our audiences, we try to go far beyond ramps and lifts – our building and the people in it are here to provide our visitors with equal access to everything we do.
