|About||Tangled Art + Disability is an organization that brings together all kinds of people and practices to explore art, culture and disability.|
"A TANGLE IS NOT A KNOT - IT CAN BE UNDONE OR REMAIN HAPPILY TANGLED. TANGLES ARE MESSY AND IMPERFECT, BUT THEY ARE ALSO COMPLEX, INTRICATE, ORGANIC, EVEN DELIBERATE. TANGLES REPRESENT WHAT THIS ORGANIZATION DOES: WE BRING TOGETHER ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE AND PRACTICES. WE DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE CONSENSUS ABOUT OUR IDENTITY, DISABILITY POLITICS, OR EVEN WHAT DISABILITY ARTS IS; AND YET WE COME TOGETHER, MESSILY, BUT INTENTIONALLY SO." -Local artist and Tangled Board Member, Eliza Chandler
"For over ten years, Abilities Arts Festival has developed and promoted the work of artists with disabilities, first through its workshops, master classes and special events.
We've grown over the last decade along with our community, and we knew the time had come for a new name and a new look - one that captures the vibrant and engaged spirit of the communities we serve.
We hope you'll join us as we launch this exciting phase of our exploration of art, culture and disability. Our 2013-2014 season offers a feast of opportunities to 'tangle' with brilliant artists, bold ideas and a world of difference." - Executive Director, Rina Fraticelli
