Arts & Access Always

Arts & Access Always

The Lehigh Valley has a rich and diverse arts culture, but too often those experiences are closed to people with disabilities, the fastest growing minority in the region. The Lehigh Valley Arts Council’s Arts & Access Always program seeks to benefit the more than 86,000 people with disabilities by providing them greater access to a wider array of cultural experiences. The program is also designed to strengthen the capacity of cultural nonprofits to serve this community by providing marketing support, training and specialized equipment, and incentive grants that actively engage persons with disabilities in the arts.

OUR MISSION CONTINUES:

to engage all citizens in the Lehigh Valley, intentionally securing the participation of all abilities, regardless of physical, sensory, or cognitive limitation, both as audience members and/or providers in the dance, theatrical, musical, visual, literary or media arts.

Incentive Grants for Greater inclusion

The Lehigh Valley Arts Council is offering three types of Incentive Grants for Greater Inclusion to arts nonprofits to encourage them to adopt cultural access as a core value.

View the 2020 Grant Opportunities

On July 12, 2018 the Arts Council produced Champions of Inclusion, the Lehigh Valley’s first-ever cultural accessibility trade fair. Held at the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts, the event highlighted six cultural organizations and six human service organizations as the regions leaders of cultural accessibility. A panel discussion and presentation featuring local experts in the field broke up the trade fair, and a performance by celebrated comedian Josh Blue capped off the event.

    Come make art! The community is invited to join in expressing our hopes and dreams for the future through images, words, and collaborative art making. We’re going to follow the lead of the Bethlehem Area School District’s 4th graders – who spent last year imagining a better future for the whole community. Based on their images, fiber artist Mallory Zondag has designed a fiber mural that you’ll get to help create. Once complete, the mural will hang from City Hall! Inside the library, you’ll be able to draw, paint, and help make community collaborative art representing the best of what we are and what we want for the future. These include: painting everyday kitchen implements to be added to an outdoor sculpture; writing your own personal hopes and dreams on ribbons to be added to “gateways to dreams” for the Closing Ceremony; and creating your own pictures.

    An innocuous visit from a potential suitor unsettles the sheltered Wingfield family. Matriarch Amanda fiercely protects her adult children from the harshness of others, but doesn’t realize that her own eccentricities are the biggest threat to their psychological survival. Brimming with poetic language and indelible characters, this play about the enduring but limiting nature of love gave rise to the powerful new dramatic voice of Tennessee Williams, a titan of the American theatre. Ages 10+

    Touchstone Theatre presents the world premiere of “Prometheus/Redux”, an original play commissioned for Festival UnBound written by Gerard Stropnicky. Marking the 20th anniversary of Bethlehem Steel’s closing, and the seminal work “Steelbound” from our 1999 “Steel Festival”, “Prometheus/Redux” asks us how we define ourselves in the face of an ever-changing, ever more interconnected world. No longer “bound” to the steel industry, what has become of the proud steel-worker Prometheus, and our community, 20 years later?

    Come hear America singing! Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book, Working is a profound and extraordinary collection of stories about the ordinary hopes and dreams of the American worker. For anyone who has ever punched a timeclock, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women so often taken for granted: the schoolteacher, the waitress, the mill worker, the mason, and the housewife, just to name a few. With music by a slate of some of Broadway’s best composers including Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and James Taylor, Working is a highly original look at how the work we do gives meaning to our lives. Ages 13+

    Sondheim and Lapine bring your favorite fairy tale characters together for a timeless, relevant, darkly comic modern classic. The story starts with a wish: the baker and his wife wish for a child; Cinderella wishes to attend the King’s Festival; Jack wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that a witch’s spell is to blame for their troubles, they set off on a journey to break the curse. All the characters get their wish — for a time. But as they soon learn, a wish granted is no guarantee of happiness…

    Tactile tour at 1 p.m. for those wishing to hear the actors’ voices and touch some props and costumes before the performance.
