Making Pittsburgh More Accessible in the Arts
For the second year in a row the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts called the Art Works grant. The support provided by the NEA is helping to fund an increasing accessibility initiative for Pittsburgh arts.
This initiative is designed to serve specific portions of the city‘s population. Anne Mulgrave, manager of grants and accessibility for the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council describes the initiative, its goals and who it benefits.
"It is designed to benefit our disability community here in the Pittsburgh region . People with developmental disabilities, people who use wheelchairs, people with other mobility impairments, people with sensory impairments… It is designed to welcome that entire community into the arts as artists, patrons, volunteers and employees.”
