Dame Denise L’Estrange-Corbet took time out of her busy schedule to visit us and talk to every single artist in our Wednesday morning Becoming an Artist class.
Dame Denise inspired all our artists to enter the IHC Art Awards this year, and listened to their stories. Dame Denise L’Estrange-Corbet has been involved with the IHC Art Awards since 2009 and became an Ambassador in 2016, something she is very honoured to do. Last year we had seven fantastic finalists in the Awards, including one highly commended.
The IHC Art Awards provides artists with an intellectual disability the opportunity to have their talent recognised, their voices heard and to sell their work. It highlights the talent and achievements of people with intellectual disabilities.
We appreciate the support that IHC and Dame Denise give to our artists and organisations like our selves throughout the country.
