About Our Mission

By the community, for the community

All Access Arts is an online social platform tailor-made for the arts and humanities. 

In our view, accessibility in this day and age is about beyond the traditional methods of the study and consumption of the arts and humanities and prioritise open conversations, sharing narratives and embracing perspectives. It should also welcome the innovations of the digital world and its ability to engage people with the world around them.

In simple terms, All Access Arts encourages the arts and humanities community to come together to share knowledge, through its social functionality and educational platform.

Our Values

Our History

In July 2020, against the backdrop of graduating University, Covid-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement, We developed and founded an ambitious project called Art Attaché to address significant social inequities in the art industry and recognised the potential to address these problems through an educational lens.

Our Founder, Ravi Shah, created Art Attaché after completing his History of Art Degree and graduating from the University of Warwick. During his three years, he began to realise the inherent elitism that revolves around the art industry and that access to it is limited and is based around who you know. He believed that Art Attaché would be a solution to this problem. Providing a designated social network for the arts, students, artists and industry professionals is connected with ease.

During its development, he saw the opportunity to tackle social and cultural issues plaguing the arts sector by establishing it as a Global Platform to promote diversity and inclusivity through social learning.

2020 was a challenging year for us all and significantly highlighted the problems with the traditional education system, and the type of content we learn. Whilst the focus was always to address these issues within the art industry, it becomes apparent that our mission is synonymous across the arts and humanities. In January 2021, we decided to completely rebrand, refresh and address all the arts and humanities head-on, to create an inclusive platform that is the first of its kind. 

As our community grew, so did our team and with that came new ideas and fresh perspective and a call for expansion. In January 2021, we set out our revised direction, cementing our purpose and identity to set the future course. 

All Access Arts represents our vision for the future and builds upon the ethos and values of Art Attaché.

Our long term mission has always been to be a universal online platform for all areas of the arts and humanities. With our new name, redesigned platform and expanded team, we have the opportunity to thrive as the first-ever, dedicated arts and humanities social learning platform.

We are continually improving, evolving and perfecting. Our story has only just begun, and the future is promising and exciting.

Thank you for all the support and love so far, the best is yet to come!
