about us

Community Access to the Arts nurtures and celebrates the creativity of people with disabilities through shared experiences in the visual and performing arts.

CATA provides innovative arts workshops to people with disabilities in a wide range of genres—painting, drawing, dance, theater, singing, drumming, juggling, yoga, and creative writing—and then shares their artistic creations with the community through our annual performance and year-round art shows. These public events shine a light on the talents of our CATA artists, drawing attention to the ability within disability.

CATA is based on a few groundbreaking ideas: that the arts can transcend difference, that creativity can be embraced by all of us, that tiny moments of connection can lead to tidal transformations.
