Creating a society where people with disabilities can learn through, participate in and enjoy the arts. Our guiding principles are: (1) Every young person with a disability deserves access to appropriate arts learning experiences; (2) All artists in the schools and art educators should be appropriately prepared to include students with disabilities in their instruction; (3) All children, youth, and adults with disabilities should have complete access to community cultural facilities and activities; and (4) All individuals with disabilities who aspire to careers in the arts should have the opportunity to develop appropriate skills.
