Promoting People with Disabilities in the Arts
Under creative arts, we are working on these issues:
- Promoting Disabled Artists. We promote a
variety of art including visual art, theater, dance, and many others. See news
- Developing a Database of Artists with Disabilities in Ontario.
We’re looking to network with artists with disabilities across the
province. If you would like to get involved, please contact the Chair.
- Peer Mentors to share ideas and support people with
disabilities who want to access the arts.

International Call for Postcards
VSA arts invites your
participation in a collaborative art project. They're taking a creative approach
to investigate the different ways people interpret the same word:
disability. The call is open to everyone around the world -
people of different cultures, ethnicities, geographic locations, and abilities.
You do not have to consider yourself an "artist" to participate. Please contact
Stephanie Moore, Director of Visual Arts, at email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> to receive a shipment of printed calls
for the project (available while supplies last). Additional copies of the
postcard and alternative formats are uploaded to the site: www.vsarts.org/postcardproject <http://www.vsarts.org/postcardproject>
deadline for receipt of postcards is February 5, 2010. VSA arts will
curate an exhibition, both online and in Washington, D.C., to represent the submissions as part of
the 2010 International VSA arts Festival held June 6 - 12,
