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.
