About National Arts & Disability Center

The National Arts and Disability Center (NADC) is a federally funded project of the University of California, Los Angeles. Established in 1984, the NADC is an information and resource center focusing on promoting the full inclusion of children and adults with disabilities into the art community. NADC disseminates information and training to artists, families with a child with a disability, the art community, and community support personnel. Major activities of NADC are developing a database that contains listings of art centers, organizations, associations, art schools, programs, museums, libraries, foundations, and city, state, and federal departments concerned with the arts and disability; writing a curriculum for the provision of outreach training; and developing a reference library and database of books, videos, products, and other relevant literature.
