Hart Club is a gallery, creative workspace and community organisation based in London.
Established in 2018, Hart Club’s mission is to champion neurodiversity within the arts. We commission original artwork and content that focuses on collaboration and celebrating the intersection of ideas and differences in artistic approaches and ways of thinking. We actively facilitate collaboration to explore the benefits of this creative exchange. Hart Club provides a platform for the artists we work with to access creative and financial recognition for work that so often goes unseen.
By providing a public facing platform we aim to encourage conversation around diversity and inclusion. We actively facilitate collaboration to explore the benefits of this creative exchange and to encourage conversation around diversity and inclusion in the Arts and beyond. We work with charities and organisations across the UK to remove barriers to access creative opportunities for the artists they support.
What is Neurodiversity?
Neurodiversity is an approach to learning and disability that argues diverse neurological conditions are result of normal variations in the human genome. Neurodiversity has its roots in the social model of disability, which considers disability to be a civil rights issue. The social model rejects the notion that an individual must be “normal” to enjoy the full range of human experience, arguing that an impairment should not constitute a barrier to inclusion or access.
Disability, then, stems largely from society’s failure to accommodate varying needs. That does not mean that all impairments are caused by external factors nor that we should not try to address them using medical means if beneficial to the individual. Rather, it means that whilst the person is experiencing the impairment society needs to work to support and accommodate them.
As well as working directly with individuals we’ve showcased the work of charities and organisations that support artists such as Age Unlimited, Artbox, Camberwell Incredibles, Cambridge House, Exceptional Individuals, Submit To Love, Headway East London, Heart n Soul and more.
