Calling all artists!!! Artists, musicians, of all levels and abilities welcome! Arts Access strives to encourage and promote the work of artists with or without disabilities throughout North Carolina. As a part of this mission, we would like to invite you to join our directory for the Artist Link Project. Due to considerable interest, we are extending our database to include arts educators and organizations who embrace inclusive programming and want to increase their client base. Inclusion in this database will enable artists and educators to exhibit and promote their work and programming in order to more fully participate in the cultural and artistic life of our state.
