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.”
