We’re using the creative arts to change mindsets about ability and disability.
We believe there is no separation between art and advocacy, that by creating together we are expanding culture to be more accessible to everyone across the disability-ability spectrum and all its intersections. In each class, we practicing listening, learning, self-expressing, and self-advocating in ways that are as unique as each person and each relationship. Ours is the art of connection without assumption. When you choose to invest in our work, you become a part of our creative movement towards an ableist-free present, one small moment at a time.
We’re a small organization that makes a tremendous impact, so your dollars go a long way! Individual Supporters like you power 11% of all our programming, which reaching thousands of individuals across disabilities, ages, and experiences in the Twin Cities, MN and beyond, annually.
