Welcome to Extant

Extant is the opposite of extinct. Formed in 1997 Extant was the inspired name chosen by a group of professional visually impaired artists, for the emergence of a new dynamic space, intended to redress our invisibility as artists and explore new creative territories.

A short film celebrating our 20th Anniversary can be viewed here, and the full length version is available on request.
