Our residencies are designed to provide a lifetime of arts learning experiences for individuals with disabilities, from birth to retirement and beyond. We also regularly offer community programs and trainings open to people of all abilities, including artists, educators, program staff, administrators, producers, and the general public.

School Programs

We partner with school districts to offer programming for students receiving Special Education services, from birth to age 21.

Community Programs

We use the arts to support community services; produce performances and exhibitions; and join cross-sector dialogues.

Adult Programs

We partner with Adult Day Programs and other service providers to offer programming for adults with disabilities ages 21 to 75+.

Training and Professional Development Programs

We provide professional development opportunities for artists, organizations, educators, and cross-sector leaders.
