I have not interacted with Disability Arts and Culture Project previously, but I have admired their commitment – to the community, and to their growth – for about a year. They are important to me because of their mission of inclusivity and social justice. Here, in their own words, is an introduction:
“Founded in 2005, DACP is a Portland-based nonprofit that focuses on providing inclusive performance opportunities and promoting social justice through the arts. Whether you’ve been with DACP for years or are just getting involved — please share with us what you think about intersections of identities, race, and disability, how DACP should grow, and how you’d like to be involved!”
I think ever since I was a teenager, I have been drawn to the underdog, the under-represented, the up and comer … DACP is an important, emerging entity that is going to make an impact – locally and beyond. I hope you’ll choose to facilitate their growth by sharing your thoughts in their 2012 community survey.
