A New Home for CATA
TWICE THE SPACE
CATA’s new home will more than double our existing space, where 90% of workshops are at capacity. With two beautiful new studios— one for visual arts and writing, and one for dance and performing arts— more artists with disabilities will find their creative voice.
A model of Universal Design, CATA’s fully accessible new home will welcome everyone, starting with a garden path that lets everyone enter the building together, whether walking or in a wheelchair.
STAFF & ARTISTS UNDER ONE ROOF
For the first time, CATA’s studios and office will be under the same roof, with an office suite, conference room, and up-to-date technology creating a headquarters for staff to launch partnerships across the Berkshires.
FACILITIES RESERVE FUND
A Facility Reserve Fund will support capital replacement needs over the long term so CATA can protect its new home for years to come.
The CATA Forward Program Fund
But of course, CATA is far more than just a building! It’s our dynamic programs all across the community that change lives for hundreds of CATA artists each year.
The CATA Forward Program Fund will fuel program growth for the next 5-7 years in our new home and in schools, day programs, and residences across our community. Although over 800 people with disabilities already participate in CATA workshops, we know there are many more who could benefit from our innovative programming.
By supporting this campaign, you’ll bring exciting pilot programs and new arts forms to CATA artists everywhere.
