From Very Special Arts

Access to the arts is achieved when all people have equal opportunity to attend, participate in, and learn through arts experiences. VSA and MetLife Foundation have designed the Arts Connect All funding opportunity to encourage arts organizations to create or enhance multi-session, inclusive education programs by strengthening partnerships with local public schools.

The goals of Arts Connect All are to:

  • Enable more students with disabilities to experience social, cognitive, and cultural development through arts learning alongside their peers without disabilities;
  • Create educational access and inclusion in the arts for students with disabilities; and
  • Document the contributions that arts organizations make to inclusive education in public schools.
