Artlink was established in 1982 as a key member of the Shape Network, working across Lincolnshire and Humberside and focusing on disability arts workshops, performances, special projects, training, information and advice.
Later in 1992 the organisation was redefined as an Arts Access Agency working with all sections of the community and across all art forms, whilst focusing delivery in the Humberside region.
In 2007 after being in a range of bases over the years, we moved into our current site.
In 2017, Hull’s year as UK City of Culture, Artlink delivered the major Square Peg disability and diversity arts programme. Artlink has continuously evolved and grown over the past 36 years, responding and adapting to an ever-changing cultural field whilst remaining true to its core values of exploring art and community.
