A creative approach to corporate disability and diversity
How can your company celebrate disability and diversity?
Working closely with the CEO and Head of Disability and Diversity at BT Wholesale in London, Abbie organised regular in-house exhibitions of fine art paintings by disabled artist that included, David Downes RCA, Alison Lapper MBE and Keith Jansz at the BT Wholesale offices.
Prior to the London 2012 Olympics, Abbie presented an inspirational evening of talks and artwork at the British Olympic/Paralympic Association Headquarters in central London, featuring as a subject, 11 times Olympic champion for dressage, Lee Pearson OBE.
In 2010 Abbie organised a successful exhibition, featuring many of her artists at the Tate Modern, to celebrate the art of mental health.
