ADNM T-Shirts

Created by the Give T-Shirt Company, the ADNM shirts are an ode to the dream of complete artistic freedom for all. Art that is free of barriers, free of prejudice and preconceptions, and art that nurtures and celebrates the unique talents and perspective of those who learn to live and create differently.

Shirts are available through the ADNM Webstore. All proceeds go towards advancing accessible arts in Manitoba.

The Soapbox Series

Thank you to everyone who took part in The Soapbox Series.

The event was a great success, and we are happy that we were able to help initiate conversation about accessibility in the arts and identify concrete needs within the community. Our overall goal is to spur tangible changes within the arts community. After the series, we feel that much closer to reaching this goal.
