Art enthusiasts were treated to a pop-up exhibition at Hackney Museum for Disabled Access Day.
People with learning disabilities and mental health conditions displayed work they had created with the help of Advance UK at a series of workshops.
After taking in the pieces, which were made using a range of techniques and materials, guests had the chance to participate in a screen printing workshop, ran by local artists.
Advance’s community manager Andy Critchley said: “We were delighted to have so many people join us on the day.
“Many of our customers have learning disabilities or mental health conditions, and some people are non-verbal or sight impaired. That’s why our art, music and drama groups are designed to support our customers to express themselves and celebrate their personality fully.”
Advance also runs weekly drama and music workshops around Hackney.
