For the past thirteen years, Amaryllis Theatre Company in Philadelphia has provided accessibility for its own audiences and has served as a resource for its colleagues through Philadelphia’s arts access initiative, Independence Starts Here. Now the affiliate of VSA (formerly Very Special Arts) for Pennsylvania, Amaryllis partners with Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to share its totally affordable solutions to accessibility and audience development, especially for patrons who are deaf or blind, with its colleagues around Pennsylvania.
You can be accessible, no matter how small an organization you are. Join us to find out how!
