About VSA Ohio

Since 1986, VSA Ohio (VSAO) has provided an inclusive environment in which people with disabilities are given the opportunity to celebrate life through the arts, education and creative expression.

VSA Ohio programming aligns with four focus areas, outlined by the guiding principals of our parent organization, VSA. Those areas are: Education, Professional Development, Cultural Access, and Public Awareness Outreach. For more information about each of these areas in Ohio, please visit the Programs page.

In addition to the work of VSA Ohio’s staff and board of directors, our programs are implemented through a statewide network of local arts, community and educational organizations.

VSAO also represents the arts and disability at professional conferences throughout the U.S. and serves as an advocate for arts, arts education, and disability issues.
