Epic Arts is a disability arts charity established in 2001 and working in the UK, Cambodia and China. We reach out to those with physical and learning disabilities of all ages and backgrounds, through workshops in dance, drama, visual arts, crafts, photography, music, and story-telling.
Epic Arts promotes integration of people of all abilities and disabilities using the arts as a form of expression, transformation and empowerment; celebrating the creative potential of those with whom we work. Epic Arts believes in a world where Every Person Counts (EPiC) and where people living with disabilities are valued, accepted and respected.
We are delighted that Archbishop Desmond Tutu has agreed to become one of our Patrons.
"I am deeply moved by Epic Arts' determination to see lives transformed through the arts and by their committment to fight injustices that affect people with disabilities. Epic Arts opens our eyes to our common humanity so that all of us can flourish."
