What is Arts Access?

ASI's Arts Access program, launched in 2013, connects Western New Yorkers to diverse arts and cultural events. We view art as essential, not a luxury, and aim to break down barriers like cost, transportation, language, and effort. Eligibility is open to anyone receiving income-based public assistance in WNY. Passes are honored at our 50+ partner locations, all dedicated to making the arts accessible to everyone. ASI offers safe transportation to and from events upon request. Join us in fostering a more inclusive arts scene in WNY.


The arts belong to everyone.

Need a ride?

Free accessible transportation to and from Arts Access events is available for locations within and around Erie & Niagara Counties through our partners at Hart Transportation.

Donate Now! 

Prior to this season, it has been the generous support of our sponsors and partner organizations that has allowed ASI to continue this program year after year. But now we need your help to expand our services and reach even more deserving members of the community.


Your tax-deductible donation to the Arts Access program via ASI will be used for:


  • Translation services from the International Institute to translate Arts Access materials into additional languages

  • Increased availability of complimentary transportation to events that is reliable, accessible, and safe

  • "Arts Access Night" events at partner organizations where passholders can meet new people and socialize before enjoying an exhibit or show
