Art-Reach creates cultural accessibility for people with disabilities and low-income communities in Greater Philadelphia by partnering with over 400 organizations to create over 212,000 opportunities for engagement a year.
Art-Reach works with four communities to make accessibility possible:
Any person with a disability who has an Art-Reach ACCESS Card, any Pennsylvanian who uses an Access Card issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to manage food or medical benefits, and any Delaware resident with an Delaware EBT card is eligible to attend dozens of cultural sites for just $2 per visit, and they can bring three friends or family members with them for the same rate on every visit.
Art-Reach has built a network of nearly 200 human service agencies and community groups who provide services for people with disabilities and low-income communities. These partnerships bring thousands of people to theaters, museums, musical venues and other cultural sites throughout the year.
Art-Reach builds accessible opportunities in the arts by partnering with over 200 cultural organizations. Art-Reach helps create accessibility awareness with the Arts Partners, adapts their existing programs and help to build new audiences for their offerings. In return, Arts Partners offer deeply subsidized or free programming to Art-Reach member organizations.
STAMP, Students at Museum in Philly is a city-wide initiative to empower Philadelphia high schoolers to independently attend museums, gardens, and historic sites for free. Every single high school student in Philadelphia can visit up to 20 museums, gardens, and historic sites for free simply by showing their school ID.
