Access JC Fridays aims to be inclusive and encourages participants to present work from artists with disabilities and/or work that celebrates disability in its many forms. 55% of the presenters are showcasing work from artists with disabilities in their segments. 

“Virtual Access JC Fridays is an incredible opportunity to meet all types of artists with disabilities, and for those artists to showcase their work in a completely accessible setting,” says Art House Access Committee Chair Rachel Handler. 

“It is imperative for arts organizations to not only make their programs accessible for patrons, but also for artists themselves,” says Producing Director Courtney Little. “Virtual Access JC Fridays puts inclusivity at the forefront of our quarterly festival, giving these talented artists an intentional platform to meet new patrons and sell their work. The virtual format allows artists the ability to present from wherever they are most comfortable, eliminating some of the barriers that artists with disabilities frequently face.”
