VSA Michigan promotes creativity in people with disabilities by creating an inclusive society where they may participate in, learn through, excel in, and enjoy the arts.


Guiding Principles

  • We respect people and focus on their abilities, not their disabilities.
  • We believe that the arts promote understanding and communication among all people.
  • We believe that the arts in many forms enhance an individual’s humanity.
  • We believe that the arts are more than a product; they are a process.
  • Every person deserves access to appropriate learning experiences in the arts.
  • All artists in schools should be appropriately prepared to include students with disabilities in their instruction.
  • All children, youth and adults with disabilities should have complete access to community cultural facilities and activities.
  • All individuals with disabilities who aspire to careers in the arts should have the opportunity to develop skills.
