Mentorship Program

It can be tough to begin or further a career in the arts—and even tougher if you have a disability. That’s why we created the Access/VSA Mentorship Program, to give Network members direct access to professional visual and performing artists with disabilities who can offer advice, make connections, and act as role models. Our mentors answer questions and help guide art careers during regular online gatherings.  
The Network’s first mentor, professional blind visual artist John Bramblitt, summed up the program this way: “My goal is to knock down all barriers and give participants a backstage pass to the art world. We need more artists with disabilities showing professionally; let’s make it happen!”
