Special Arts Services supports professional arts activities that serve distinct cultural and ethnic communities as well as organizational and project programming providing the following: programs that enhance access to the arts for historically underserved communities, activities that bring the arts to isolated geographic areas and to communities with high rates of poverty, programs for people with disabilities, scholarship programs for arts training and tuition-free or low cost classes serving students from historically underserved communities or with disabilities; and arts programs that promote intergenerational and multi-cultural communities, including ethnic traditions that serve their own unique and diverse populations.
Special Arts Services supports the activities of established and emerging organizations and professional training in arts disciplines to promote advanced study or entry of underserved artists towards an arts career. Special Arts Services encourages collaborations and innovative projects, whether they are multi-disciplinary activities or in a specific discipline of the performing arts, visual arts or media.
