Arts Inc. is a partnership between GDance and Art Shape, set up as a result of research and consultation with the broader voluntary sector in 2012. The mission of the partnership is to support and develop inclusive practice in the county.
In November 2014 with the support of Gloucestershire Community Foundation we launched our new ‘Arts Inc. Academy’ in Gloucester.
The Academy is designed to accommodate disabled and disadvantaged children and young people aged 8 – 18years, enabling them to access an exciting and vibrant arts programme alongside their non-disabled peers. Participants are enjoying exploring dance, film, animation and visual arts with artists and dance practitioners experienced in facilitating inclusive art sessions.
As it develops the Academy will interface with local and county arts events and initiatives such as festivals and carnivals, and talent development initiatives, raising visibility and celebrating achievement.
