What is Paralym Art?
Helping disabled artists realise their dreams
Paralym Art looks to help disabled artists, by giving them a way to survive without having to have a dependence on social security programs, and to help them form ties with companies that will help back these amazing artists.
As well as this, in preparation for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we have received the Beyond 2020 recognition
