VSA Arts Tennessee
August 22, 2013

VSA Arts Tennessee is not only inclusive of typical and differently-abled children and adults, but the director herself (Lori Kissinger) often writes personal emails to encourage them! A young lady in Knoxville, herself a learning challenged young adult wants to improve her writing. Though that isn't often a component of VSA Arts Tennessee, Lori thoughtfully directed the gal to other sources in a detailed email. Leadership like that brings out the best in Lori's supporters, as well. Being a professor at Middle Tennessee State University, she teaches her students about community projects. All the while, her students take part and volunteer at the various workshops and events. What a winning combination! When a children are given a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder there can be feelings of isolation for the parents. But the non-profit makes quite an effort to reach communities throughout Tennessee. Additionally, VSA's link to the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center smooths the information routes, making the VKC research readily available to remote areas as well as urban ones.

I have been blessed as a visual arts coordinator to do two workshops with VSA Arts Tennessee. It is a beautiful sight to see the leadership from within the non-profit consistently create a level playing field for children and adults, allowing all of us to share in the fun growth experiences!
