Art-Reach

Art-Reach connects people with disabilities or economic disadvantages to the arts. The organization serves as a conduit for communities who want access to performances or cultural institutions. In addition, Art-Reach advises other arts organizations on how to serve those communities. Support from the Center has helped Art-Reach evaluate the success of its work, and develop plans for improving critical programs.
