NEW THIS YEAR! ArtReach is proud to announce that projects involving Deaf artists and artists with disabilities may now apply for an additional TAC grant to cover accessibility-related expenses. A TAC Accessibility grant will provide up to an additional $5,000 per project towards accessibility costs for artists incurred during the project. These funds may go towards supporting any participating artists, which includes the team leading the project and project participants. Click here to learn more!
