The purpose of the ArtsAccess program is to make the arts available to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. We want to eliminate the financial barrier that prevents families and individuals from experiencing our city’s vibrant, diverse arts scene. Inclusion in arts events builds communities, inspires creativity, and increases understanding of different stories and viewpoints. In addition, exposure to the arts, early and often, builds future audiences, strengthening the economy and culture of our city. 

For more information, contact ArtsMemphis at 901-578-2787 or info [at] artsmemphis [dot] org

Details about the 2016-2017 ArtsAccess program will be available the week of August 29.

In the meantime, we encourage you to visit our events calendar to get involved in various arts opportunities this summer. There are many free and pay-what-you-can experiences available.
