Community Artists

We draw on volunteers, artists, and arts educators and give them unique access to our inclusive arts facilitation techniques.

Every year, we welcome community artists to lead workshops for H’art artists and to support diverse groups of people in the arts. We draw from a pool of advanced volunteers, visiting artists, and local arts educators and offer them unique access to our inclusive arts facilitation techniques through our MixAbilities Inclusive Arts Training program.
