SPARK Arts and Disability Network Annual General Meeting

June 19, 2011

June 23, 2011

The SPARK Arts and Disability Network Inc. is pleased to invite you to our first annual general meeting.

Our journey of three years began with the SPARK Initiative, a community art piece created by Susan Gibson in May 2008 at MAWA (Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art and ILRC (Independent Living Resource Centre). Through Susan’s initiative people were able to come together, many for the first time , to engage in dialogue about accessibility to the arts and the added challenges of working as an artist with a disability. This initiative would eventually grow into what is now officially the SPARK Arts and Disability Network Inc.

Our vision:

The full inclusion of artists and audiences with disabilities into all facets of the arts community.

Our mission:

To facilitate a network of artists and stakeholders from both the arts and disability communities that supports artists with disabilities in achieving individual artistic excellence, promotes higher visibility of these artists within all disciplines and promotes policies and practices intended to make the arts more accessible to all Manitobans.
