An open day was held at NANSA's Artshoproject on Earlham Road to mark a new direction for the project.

The Artshoproject's recent revamp means it now offers a new range of upcycling furniture, haberdashery, knitting and crocheting, art books, jewellery and art and craft essentials.

It was opened by Radio Norwich Breakfast show host Rob Chandler who also took the time to meet staff and customers.

The Artshoproject was also chosen for the Radio Norwich donut run, with a delivery of donuts to start off the morning.

The open day was held to help celebrate Learning Disability Awareness Week, which ran from June 19 till 25. This was an opportunity to raise awareness of day-to-day issues faced by people with learning disabilities, as well as sharing the successes of people who have used NANSA.
