By offering local and international arts-based platforms on which audiences can experience authentic disabled voices, we challenge the cultural confusion, misinformation, stigma, and discrimination too often associated with and experienced by people with physical and mental differences.
DisArt points to a new reality in which Disabled and nondisabled cultures work together. With our Grand Rapids partners, we have started a social movement that invites disability into the public sphere.
Disabled individuals have a cultural identity that is too often left out of conversations about diversity and inclusion. DisArt is working to change this.
We give voice, value, and visibility to Disabled individuals in order to promote a vibrant Disability culture and improve the lived experience of disability within our cities.
