VSA Massachusetts, an affiliate of Seven Hills Foundation, would like to thank the Boston Cultural Council for their grant award of $3,000. This grant award will assist VSA Massachusetts in continuing their mission in promoting the involvement of people with all abilities in the cultural life of our communities. For people with disabilities, the arts represent a world of resources and opportunities. Artistic expression provides an outlet for creative voice and unlimited possibilities for personal, academic and professional success. By engaging in the arts, people with disabilities contribute substantially to our workplaces and communities, extinguish false stereotypes, and create a global culture that truly represents all people. VSA Massachusetts increases opportunities and access for people of all abilities to participate in the arts, and promotes inclusive arts education practices and capacity in schools, communities, and cultural spaces.
Thank you so much to the Boston Cultural Council for their continued support in our efforts to make the arts more accessible to us all.
