about us

Uncovered Artistry is a non-profit organisation, based in Glasgow, that celebrates the creativity of survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. We are founded on the belief that creativity and entrepreneurship can be healing and empowering. Uncovered Artistry hosts writing workshops, crafting workshops and a mentorship programme, which pairs survivors with professional artists for one-on-one training.
