The mission of DACP is to further the artistic expression of people with both apparent and non-apparent disabilities. We view disability as a natural and valuable variation of the human form. We believe affirmative disability identity is intertwined with racial, gender, social, and economic justice. DACP accomplishes this mission by supporting the creative expression of people with disabilities. DACP also supports established and emerging artists, as well as the community at large, in developing knowledge and expression of disability culture and pride.
DACP supports a progressive view of disability. We embrace a social/embodiment model of disability, knowledge of critical disability studies, disability justice and disability arts.
DACP advances the artistic and cultural development of the region’s disability community and to educate the arts and social justice communities about equity and disability culture. We provide opportunities to collaborate and perform without the barriers intrinsic to many institutions. We express and celebrate disability identities through the arts and organizing.
