Everyone should be able to experience the arts.

ArtsAccess Program

The purpose of the ArtsAccess program is to make the arts available to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.  The ArtsAccess program makes that possible thanks to the generous participation of more than 30 local arts groups, who provide free admission for those who face financial barriers.
