To advance artistic and cultural opportunities for people with disabilities, support a social/embodiment disability model and an intersectional approach to social justice, and educate the broader community about our lived experiences, rich culture and social justice.
Bottom Line for Portland
This year, DACP educated 350 people in Portland by exposing them to cross-disability and integrated dance, films by and starring people with disabilities, discussion on topics of art equity, immigrants and refugees with disabilities, and tools to understand and implement disability and economic justice.
“DACP’s dance company continues to be instrumental in building my daughter’s independence, confidence in herself and appreciation of the arts. Family and friends who attend the performances are awed and appreciative of the beauty of diversity.”
