The Visability Arts Winter Fair features brilliant artists and makers with invisible Disabilities/long term health conditions/neuro-divergences. Heading to the Friends Meeting House in Brighton on Sat 14 Dec, this free and inclusive event features 25 stalls selling unique and beautiful work.
Visability Arts is a volunteer organisation which showcases the talent amongst our disabled community, mentoring and supporting artists and makers. Their Winter Fair sees one of a kind artworks and craft items. If you’re looking to buy something special, the fair will have everything from ceramics to needle point and everything in between. It comes to the downstairs room at the Friends Meeting House, which is fully wheelchair accessible.The last event in August attracted over 700 visitors and raised over £1000 for their artists. Visability Arts’ mission since has been to put together a super accessible Christmas craft fair which showcases some of the best makers in Brighton. As the fair’s vendors all have Invisible Disabilities, the venue has been utilised to remove barriers which might prevent them selling work at other less accessible craft fairs. Visability Arts have created a supportive and nurturing environment for artists and makers to blossom. They’ve undertaken mentoring and run ‘crafternoons’ in recent months, to ensure that our vendors are ready and prepared for the event. A key focuses is to help a group which struggle in the colder winter months, giving them something to work towards and helping them maintain their mental and physical health better than they otherwise might.
The Visability Arts Winter Fair comes to the Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton BN1 1AF on Sat 14 Dec (10:30 – 17:00) 2019
