Arts and Culture Stories

Ensuring inclusion and belonging for people with disabilities and their families in all aspects of life includes access to, and participation in, the arts and culture. From community theatre to school programs to nationally and globally recognized artists, the opportunity for everyone to contribute to and take part in this important part of our society is paramount.

There are numerous examples of celebrating and advancing inclusion and access in disability arts and culture across AUCD’s network of centers and programs in every U.S. state and territory and beyond. We hope you enjoy reading about these many creative and innovative efforts.
