Some Progress, but Wrong Priority

I just read this –
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Accessibility-and-the-Arts/

As a cultural worker, I’m excited to see the White House promoting accessibility to the arts. But I wish they’d get real, and give this high a profile to the issue of community-based long-term services and supports! If you are stuck in a nursing home, or don’t have help to get out of bed in the morning, it’s awfully hard to paint a picture or attend a symphony concert.

Maybe we need to start a movement of Disabled Artists for Community Choice! Would the administration start listening then?
