Impact Art Fair - an annual, high profile event, well advertised and attended by estimated 2,500 visitors. Although similar if not equal in quality to mainstream fairs such as Affordable and Frieze, it will display works only by socially excluded arts practitioners. Socially excluded artists includes those who have mental health issues or learning disabilities, have experienced homelessness, are ex-offenders, refugees, substance mis-users or who are disabled. These will be mostly relatively unknown but could include some more well known artists too.

Artists exhibiting include:

Phil Wildman
Russell Jones
Heidi Aldous
Sara Rivers
Tiye Barika
Maria Kuipers
John O'Donnell
Rodney

Why do we need the Impact Art Fair?

Our experience is that there are hundreds of commercially viable works (including photographs) already in existence amongst socially excluded artists and writers. Most artists/writers remain unknown and unseen, not through lack of talent but through lack of opportunity. Since they produce work that is equal in quality to much found in mainstream markets why not a fair that specialises in this work? We see the Impact Art Fair powerfully integrating socially excluded people with mainstream society, markets and culture.
