ASI's Arts Access program aims to break the barriers of inaccessibility to the region's arts and culture sector, which are often money, transportation, and knowledge of events. We partner with local theaters, galleries, and other arts and culture organizations to offer free or reduced-cost opportunities to low-income Western New York residents and their families. ASI envisions a region where anyone can engage with the arts.
Please note that ASI staff will be working remotely due to the current COVID-19 situation. Due to this, we will not be accepting Arts Access walk-ins at our office. We will continue to process applications and respond to voicemails, although email is preferred since voicemail will only be checked once a day. Our transportation will also be suspended through at least the month of April and the Arts Access happy hour will be postponed.
