The arts provide us with a universal language through which we communicate experiences and unite diverse cultures. Through the arts, VSA Kentucky provides opportunities for people with disabilities to be part of the life of their communities and make our world more accessible and enjoyable. Arts education, community arts programming, and professional development are vital elements of our service to Kentucky.
