Complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and providing accommodations for people with disabilities is not only your legal responsibility, it’s good business practice and it’s the right thing to do. And IAC can help.

The arts have intersected with education strongly and inextricably for all of human history. Each of the art disciplines can carry forward a civilization's history, teach lessons, and celebrate our individual and collective heritage.

Increase your impact, value, resources, and long-term sustainability with community engagement. Community engagement as the activity of consistently cultivating two-way community relationships – beyond conventional programmatic partnerships.

Community engagement (the what) describes the intentional cultivation of two-way, exchange-driven community relationships, and IDEA (the how) describes ways we intentionally remove barriers and welcome all to participate in those relationships.

A community is at its best when it feels coherent, collaborative, and safe. Arts participation contributes to social cohesion by reducing isolation, encouraging cooperation, and building community networks.
