disability is not a four-letter word

p.s. it’s a ten-letter word!

Last year, Upstream Arts launched the “disability is not a four-letter word” campaign to generate artistic reflection and public conversation about stigma associated with disability. Check out the latest in our growing archive of resources.


Upstream Arts is honored to be 1 of 16 organizations selected to participate in the Bush Foundation’s Community Creativity Cohort! The Cohort is a one-time program designed to both recognize and learn from exemplary organizations that meaningfully engage people in the arts and integrate the arts into public life.
