Create Grants Mentor Program; Hold Workshop for Disabled Artists

Consider creating a Grants Mentor Program to help interested disabled artists determine specific artistic goals, resource needs, planned or proposed projects (taking into consideration any needs or limitations due to the disability). Mentors can help identify programs and resources that might help meet those needs based on factors such as discipline and geography. Resources could include grant programs, but also may expand the reach to any ongoing program areas that might facilitate the needs. Hold an NADC workshop where applicants could participate online for maximum participation, and create a “needs assessment” and then work to create an individualized action plan for how to move forward. I find that I am often at a loss as to where to look for resources as a disabled artist, with specific needs, to help move my artistic vision forward. I would find such service of great benefit.
