We’re looking for community-minded leaders who are committed to creativity, innovation and inclusion to help us launch our second decade with these stellar programs. We are seeking sponsors for:
Artist in Residence Program
A Canadian first! This residency will be awarded each year to a gifted artist from the disability community. Selected by a prestigious jury and widely promoted, the residency will provide the artist with financial and material resources to further their work.
Artist in the Schools
Our children’s festival is bursting at the seams. A satellite program will allow us to take artists to the children, creating significant employment for artists with disabilities while providing invaluable arts and social programming for our schools.
Abilities Travelling Festival
After 10 years’ success in Toronto, it’s time to take this show on the road! A “best of the fest” weekend will allow us to share this rich gathering of talent with communities across Ontario.
These programs are solid, well researched and market-tested. We know they will be priceless additions to the cultural landscape… but we need your help to do it!
We take every opportunity to single out our partners. They are recognized and promoted as model organizations which value their employees and clients with disabilities. Our partners are recognized on Abilities Arts Festival promotional materials including our website, advertisements, posters, tickets and press releases, as well as through our live media promotion.
