Attendees and Teaching Artists at the Art of We play instruments together

Save the date! Join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2024 from 6-9pm for our annual celebration and fundraiser, IN PERSON with an option to join ONLINE.

We will gather together our community of program participants, partners, artists, and supporters to celebrate another year of work at the the intersection of art, disability, and learning and raise funds for the coming year.

In the face of challenges and with the support of our community, we persist. We are still creating, advocating, playing, connecting, AND celebrating. So we’re coming together under the theme “We are Still Celebrating” as an opportunity to find joy with friends, engage in playful art making, win prizes, and move our work forward for the coming year. As always, the event is FREE, family-friendly, and fully accessible.

Attention businesses and organizations! If creativity and inclusivity are some of your values and you want to be part of celebrating the disability community, join us as a sponsor!
