Activism

DANT works with city agencies, elected officials, and cultural institutions to address the lack of disability equity in NYC’s arts and culture landscape.

Programming

We hold events to build and support a public conversation about disability aesthetics and artistry.

Sustainability

Connecting disabled artists with each other and with scholars, cultural workers, and funders is key to making our movement sustainable and powerful.

Help us foster disability artistry in NYC.
