We are a not for profit art + disability organization dedicated to connecting professional and emerging artists, the arts community and a diverse public through creative passion and artistic excellence. Our mandate is to support disability-identified artists, to cultivate Disability Arts in Canada, and to enhance access to the arts for artists and audiences of all abilities.
Tangled Art + Disability will support artists and curators in generating vital work that enhances and expands a ‘crip’ aesthetics, and integrating inclusive practices of access and accessibility.
