    Tangled Art + Disability is a not for profit arts organization and forum for creative and artistic excellence that serves as a leader, catalyst and resource for bringing together professional artists, emerging artists and arts and cultural organizations and a diverse public.

    Tangled Art + Disability uses the power of art as a transforming medium to enhance the understanding and acceptance that people with disabilities can and do make significant contributions to all aspects of society, in particular the arts and an evolving cultural sector. Since 2003, the festival has been promoting innovation, excellence and participation in the arts by people with disabilities. From its proud beginnings as a project of the Canadian Abilities Foundation, to its 2006 incorporation as a separate and independent not-for-profit organization, Abilities Arts Festival (now Tangled Art + Disability) has been providing the stages and exhibition venues that artists with disabilities must have access to in order for their work to be seen and for their talents to be recognized. Each year since, the Festival has moved forward to provide accessible and inclusive opportunities for both artists with disabilities and appreciative art audience.
