Jack Straw Cultural Center has a series of accessible workshops for youth with disabilities such as autism, social emotion issues, deafness, blindness, deafness and blindness, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and also chronic and critical health needs. We’ve been conducting workshops with Lowell Elementary School‘s special needs children for years, and have a Blind Youth Audio Project that we’ve run in conjunction with The Washington State Department of Services for the Blind (DSB)’s Youth Employment Solutions (YES) program. Additionally, our New Media Gallery workshops are designed to be inclusive of youth with disabilities.
Jack Straw’s programs for youth with disabilities are made possible with the generous support of the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts, VSA arts Met Life Foundation, Battelle, Seattle Rotary, the Washington State Arts Commission, partner organizations, and individuals. Our accessible workstations were purchased with the generous support of the City of Seattle Department of Information Technology and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
