Art In Motion

Supporting and empowering artists who face disabling barriers to reach their full artistic potential.

Art in Motion (AIM) is a not-for-profit participatory arts organisation based in Bristol, UK.

We provide opportunities for artists with learning disabilities to engage with contemporary multidisciplinary arts by exploring ideas and concepts with a specific focus on heritage, the built environment and a sense of place.


Our artists are at the core of everything we do. They are a multi talented collective who have exhibited their work both locally and internationally.
