What is Arts Access?
Arts Services Inc.'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 Inc. envisions a region where anyone can engage with the arts.
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.
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
