The Disabled Artists Creative Cohort is a new leadership network of paid, disability-led artists, makers, and doers.
The Disabled Artists Creative Cohort is the first of its kind for the Pittsburgh arts community. The seven members will create access-centered programming to support and empower disabled artists of all disciplines in Pittsburgh.
This new cohort, which will include a mix of artists with disabilities and arts professionals who identify as disabled, will also advise the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council in authentically advocating for disability justice and intersectionality in arts organizations throughout the region.
Applications for cohort members are now closed and currently in the process of being reviewed and scored by a carefully selected group of Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council staff members.
