On today’s podcast, I touch base with John Orr, Executive Director of Art-Reach. After the “Arts Funding Panel: Who Should Pay?”, I realized that we have known each other for 17 years and John’s path that lead to Art-Reach is an interesting one. We talk about Art-Reach’s mission and goals as well as the accessibility opportunities of our cultural community.
Art-Reach creates, advocates for and expands accessible opportunities in the arts so the full spectrum of society is served. Art-Reach works with the cultural community to ensure that opportunity exists for all people, and in doing so we will lift Philadelphia up to become a national model for cultural accessibility.
