Creative Spirit Art Centre
Creative Spirit Art Centre is a public art gallery and visual art studio "dedicated to advancing the creative power in people with disabilities" . CSAC helps artists with disabilities to make, exhibit and sell their art, and to integrate artists with disabilites into the mainstream arts community. The permanent collection is: Art Brut, Outsider Art, Folk Art and art created by artists with disabilities. We house a resource and information centre on art and disabilities. We are a registered charity with Revenue Canada Charities Division and members of CARFAC, CMA, OOAG and OMA. and International Affiliates of VSA arts.
Thoughts about art and community:
We would like to have a strong network of an arts network based on the artscommunity involvement in the non profit arts sector. A permanent on line index/catlogue according to geographic locations and discipline would be helpful along with an annual meeting addressing the common collective needs of the network.
