The BEAM artists are a collective of disabled artists who have been exhibiting their work with the support of Southwark Outreach Services since 2006.

. Southwark Outreach Services were established in 2004 and provides a variety of social, creative and physical activity programmes for approximately 100 disabled service-users in Southwark. Our primary aim is to increase participants’ access to community facilities and to help develop independence and confidence.

The purpose of BEAM is to provide physically disabled artists within Southwark, with a supportive meeting place, enabling them to develop their art practice, and to create and broaden their opportunities and to exhibit their work as a group within the community. The vision of The Beam Artists’ is to discover each person’s creativity, nurture it, value it, and share it.

Exploring the idea of seeing creativity from a new perspective, the artists involved with BEAM have all discovered art as an incredibly empowering and healing medium. Through the use of imagination the ordinary turns into something extraordinary.
As an example, Sharon White takes colouring book scenes of British tourist attractions and transforms them into a psychedelic wonderland. She mentions how important it is to see her work exhibited: “It’s amazing. If someone likes my work, it’s like I’ve made a new friend.”
