Canadian art gallery offers platform for artists with disabilities
July 24, 2016
For over a decade, the Tangled art gallery in Toronto, Canada, has been dedicated to providing a platform for artists who are disabled, deaf or living with mental illness.
Tangled, which is a disability arts organization, has been organizing festivals and professional development activities, among other initiatives.
Now the gallery has decided to feature disability art through the year. Other famous centers like the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. is also famous for similar initiatives like hanging artwork at accessible heights and ensuring the text is large enough to read.
They also have audio descriptions for the blind and visually impaired.
