Able Artists

We change ideas about what is possible for people with disabilities or barriers.

Our Able Artists series brings professional Canadian artists with disabilities and leaders in the inclusive arts movement to Kingston to share their work, stories and insights. Through professional development workshops, we share knowledge with the public and with those capable of working as inclusive arts facilitators for Kingston’s diverse population.

An Able Artists workshop was nominated for the City of Kingston’s Celebrating Accessibility Award in 2017.

Showing What’s Possible Through The Arts

Launched in 2011, Able Artists is an ongoing series of talks, performances and workshops that bring professional Canadian artists with disabilities and leaders in the inclusive arts movement to Kingston to share their work and insights and advance accessible arts for artists and audiences
