The National accessArts Centre is a fun, fast-paced, dynamic work environment where we all collaborate to provide artistic training, creation, exhibition, and present opportunities for artists with disabilities. As a creativity hub for artists living with disabilities, so often limited in their opportunities and choices, we blur the lines between professional artists, disabled artists, entrepreneurs, innovators, and storytellers by sharing their work internationally and re-shaping how the world views and appreciates their talents and place in our communities.

Reporting to the Manager, Studio (MS), and working closely with the Director, Artist & Program Development (DAPD) and the Lead, Programs & Exhibitions (LPE), the DPC will help ensure that the NaAC’s roster of artists living with disabilities have access to progressive and accessible artistic training in the visual arts. With guidance and input from the MS, DAPD, and LPE, the DPC will develop online training programs that will demonstrate meaningful outcomes that aim to advance the artistic practice of each of our artists.

The DPC will work to ensure that our online programs meet the artistic goals of participants, while remaining accessible to a variety of learning styles and abilities working remotely. The DPC will work directly with artists, the NaAC team, and past surveys of artist needs, and current work to develop a curriculum for artists connecting the NaAC via online platforms. We have heard from our artists who would like training in a variety of visual arts foundations, the DPC will set a roadmap of best practices and for the NaAC to implement
