It takes considerable resources to create and perform art the way Kinetic Light likes to do it: daring, immense, and always accessible. As our organization grows, we have also launched programs that support, celebrate, and create opportunities for other disabled artists.
We are deeply humbled by the support we have received—from funders who are committed to transforming the field, and from people like you who share our dreams and want to become part of the journey.
Your gift will support Kinetic Light in meeting this tremendous moment for our organization and for the arts ecosystem at large. Please join us as we work to change the world.
Kinetic Light is a fiscally sponsored organization, allowing generous donors to make tax-deductible gifts in support of our work. To make a donation today, please email Managing Director, Molly Terbovich-Ridenhour.
