What is Arts Access?

Arts Services Initiative's Arts Access program aims to break the barriers of inaccessibility to the region's arts and culture sector These barriers often include money, transportation, and knowledge of events. We partner with local theaters, galleries, and other arts and culture organizations to offer free or reduced-cost opportunities to low-income Western New York residents and their families. Arts Services Initiative envisions a region where anyone can engage with the arts.

Registration open: 

  • July 6 – May 14 every year

Registration closed:

  • May 15 – July 6 every year


All Arts Access passes expire on August 31 every year.

We envision a community where everyone can engage with the arts, regardless of means or abilities.

Need Transportation?

Free transportation is available for locations within and around Erie & Niagara Counties.
