The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) published a new Toolkit on Careers in the Arts for People with Disabilities. Developed in partnership with Art Beyond Sight, this toolkit empowers individuals with disabilities to explore arts careers and access resources to support their success.

The toolkit provides resources in four tailored sections, recognizing the critical role that arts employers, curators, presenters, educators, and grantmakers play in fostering disability equity and inclusion in the arts. The toolkit also features profiles of artists who have found career success, offers first-hand advice to aspiring artists for advancing their own careers, and describes ways arts employers, educators, and funders can support individuals with disabilities in their arts career path.
