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 three groups to make accessibility possible:

 

  

Member Organizations

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.

Arts Partners

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.

ACCESS Cardholders

Pennsylvania ACCESS cards are distributed to people who receive benefits from the state of Pennsylvania. The ACCESS Philly program is open to anyone with the blue or yellow card.
