Upstream Arts uses the power of the creative arts to activate and amplify the voice and choice of individuals with disabilities.

Investing in Upstream Arts goes beyond supporting opportunities for expression in the arts for individuals with disabilities. Your investment supports a space, a culture, and a belief that the voice and choice of ALL individuals must be heard and valued. This coming year, we will carry out programs with over 20 adult disability service providers and 60 Special Education classrooms; we will share our strategies on teacher practice through professional development; and we will produce original performances with Young Dance and Minneapolis Community Education in Spring of 2018. To do this, we again have a goal of raising $100,000 by June 30.

We need you, our community to help us fulfill our mission, and hope that you will consider investing in this vision of a more connected, inclusive world. Enormous thanks and happy holidays!
