NPO Theatre Accessibility network (TA-net)
”Let’s enjoy performing arts together” is our mission statement.
Our goal is to support and give voice to every disabled audience member, including deaf and hard of hearing, who wishes to enjoy performing arts. The founding member of our organization is deaf. We believe it important to raise and share the opinions and perspectives of the disabled concerning performing arts in order to inform, improve, and expand the scope and efficacy of the performing arts field. Established in 2012, our group was certified as a nonprofit organization (NPO) in 2013.
