 The Artist Link Project database is now available!


Arts Access has initiated a new program designed to increase the number of working artists with disabilities, and the number of inclusive arts education programs in North Carolina. We are recruiting artists of all levels who identify as having a disability, as well as arts educators who offer, or want to offer, inclusive programming to be listed in our Artist Link Project database. Our goal is to promote and support the work of our listed artists in order to see more artists with disabilities working in the arts community!
