Kickstart’s mission is to produce and present works by artists with disabilities and to promote artistic excellence among artists with disabilities working in a variety of disciplines.
Kickstart Disability Arts and Culture (formerly the Society for Disability Arts and Culture) was incorporated November 1998 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Our objectives are:
- to encourage and support artists to create and present authentic interpretations of the disability experience;
- to provide opportunities for the development and advancement of artists with disabilities; and
- to promote practices that will make the arts more accessible to all members of the Canadian public.
