    Empowering Artists with Disabilities to Fill the Creative Industry Employment Gap

    1 in 6 children are being born with developmental disabilities - such as Autism and Down syndrome - requiring lifelong support, adding to over 830,000 California adults with developmental disabilities. Our cultural landscape will be stunted if we don’t help the artists among this population to express themselves. Tierra will identify people who are artistically gifted, and empower them to build careers, increasing employment in creative industries such as animation, ceramics, and commercial art.
