Imagine Art Long-Term Care Housing VISTA, OneStar
Imagine Art is an art studio & creative incubator in Austin, Texas that is empowering artists with disabilities to be leaders in systems change to improve the lives of Texans with disabilities. We are demonstrating how to creatively leverage public and private resources to establish innovative, inclusive spaces that are driven by art and art-making. Imagine Art is partnering with VISTA for our next-level development to establish long-term care services and expansion to offer residential services. Our vision explores the limits of artist life-work programming that creates opportunities for artists with and without disabilities to explore creative housing and employment design. We are seeking creative VISTAs who are innovative visionaries with skills to research the limits of existing state regulations and help us to design a state of the art program that will change the way Texas approaches long-term care.
