Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Arts Unbound is dedicated to the artistic achievement of people living with disabilities and to the continuing artistic enrichment of seniors. We provide visual arts education and professional development to help emerging artists compete on the retail market. By promoting the work of artists with disabilities and seniors, we center their art-making rather than any impairments and by doing so challenge the stigma associated with disability and aging. Our goals: To promote careers in the visual arts as an option for people with disabilities or special needs. To provide ongoing participatory arts programming to seniors to support their artistic expression and emotional wellbeing. To ensure artists with disabilities have equal access to resources and can express their own creative vision, rather than be isolated or suppressed.
Arts Unbound (AU) is a non-profit organization founded in 2000. In the simplest terms, we are an art gallery and educational art studio for people with disabilities and seniors. Yet what we are doing, through the arts, is challenging the stigma and barriers that keep people with disabilities from participating in the workforce. We are preparing talented individuals to be self-employed, working artists contributing to our community, and our economy.
