About Arts Access

Arts Access is North Carolina‚Äôs only non-profit organization dedicated solely to making the arts accessible to children and adults with disabilities. The organization was founded in 1984 by a group of dedicated residents who were actively involved in North Carolina’s growing cultural arts community, but wanted to make sure the community was inclusive to everyone. They started with the simple action of donating wheelchairs to venues around the Triangle, and those small acts started a movement that led to Arts Access serving over 2,500 North Carolinians annually. Today, Arts Access is nationally recognized for its work at the intersection of arts and disability.

Arts Access has spent the past 38 years advocating for the rights of people with disabilities, working with cultural arts organizations to build inclusive programming, and working with schools to ensure K-12 arts curriculum is inclusive and accessible to kids with disabilities.
