The Art of Voice and Choice

The Art of Voice and Choice uses interactive arts activities to provide an experiential venue for individuals with disabilities and their support staff to learn and practice Person Centered Thinking. Individuals with disabilities strengthen self-advocacy skills while gaining a new perspective on how to use their voice and choice to create a more self-determined life for themselves. Staff learn and practice how to reinforce and activate the personal voice and choice of the individuals they support.

To learn more about bringing Upstream Arts to your setting, please select one of the following:

“The work of Upstream Arts is not just about the disability community. It’s about all of us. Healthy, strong communities are inclusive communities. ”  

-Matt Guidry,  Artistic Director, Upstream Arts
