Art By, About, and For People with Disabilities

This campaign has concluded, but if you would like to still make a gift to support the Lied Center, please visit www.Lied.ku.edu/donate.

~~~

The Lied Center of Kansas has long been committed to providing diverse and inclusive programming. In the 2016-17 Lied Center season, that commitment brought the Blind Boys of Alabama, Comedian Josh Blue and AXIS Dance Company to our stage. These artists were featured as part of a concerted effort to present performing arts by, about and for people with disabilities. The Paludan Sisters and Chicago Children’s Theatre were also part of the program that was supported, for one year only, by the National Endowment for the Arts. They presented free performances for children on the autism spectrum, and their family members.

Our community benefitted greatly from the programming that was made possible at the Lied Center for the 2016-17 season:

“I loved that I didn’t have to limit the way [my child] was interacting…for a parent of a special-needs child, that is huge,” —Kellista Keaton, parent who attended Red Kite, Brown Box, a performance for children with autism

“We perform because it helps people understand diversity and connect with their community,” —Dwane Scheuneman, dancer Axis Dance Company

With your support, we can use the momentum created this year to accomplish our four goals for this project:

  • To present works for people with disabilities
  • To present works that are created and performed by artists with disabilities
  • To engage our community in discourse about the issues and challenges faced by people with disabilities
  • To improve the accessibility of our facility and services

Make your gift today and make an impact on diversity and inclusion by supporting performing arts by, about and for people with disabilities.

Your donation will help fund performances that promote diversity and inclusion in a safe environment.
