Dec. 20th Holiday Sharing: CATA Style!

Last week, CATA artists from across Berkshire County took turns performing for a crowd of 150 fellow artists, their caregivers, faculty and friends, giving us a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how they are interpreting this year’s “Everyday People” theme in their workshops.

Our artists gave and the rest of us received.

In an hour’s time we witnessed yoga, improv, singing, dancing, ukulele, juggling and African drumming! It was an exuberant gathering: one that left us feeling lighter from the joy we shared together.

The Sharing was CATA in action—everyone coming together to celebrate creativity, to share work-in-progress, to encourage each person’s expression of themselves through the arts.

Programs like the “Sharing” happen only because of YOU. Generous contributions from community members like you fund 1,000 arts workshops annually, serving 600 artists with disabilities right here in our community.

Please join us again by making a year-end gift. Gifts of all size make a difference! Thank you for taking a stand for community, inclusion, and creativity for all!
