VSA Arts of Massachusetts is a leader in universal design practice for performances, which they have coined as "Inclusive By Design" They have partnered with my presenting organization, (one of the Major Dance Presenters in the region), to insure the widest possible inclusion and best possible experiential opportunities for audiences with disabilities. They area a mean, lean and passionate organization, and an effective partner in the Boston arts community.
