Canada’s oldest and largest disability arts organization…

The National accessArts Centre (NaAC) was founded as the In-Definite Arts Society in 1975. We provide artistic training, creation, and exhibition/presentation opportunities for artists with developmental, physical, and acquired disabilities.

The NaAC supports more than 300 artists living with developmental and/or physical disabilities through on-site studio supports and workshops, and an even broader community of Canadian artists with disabilities through immersive programs delivered online.

2021-2026 NaAC Strategic Plan


Communities across Canada recognize, celebrate, and proactively include the talents and skills of artists with disabilities.


Providing artistic training, creation, exhibition, and presenting opportunities for artists with disabilities, and sharing the power of their creativity through local and global partnerships and advocacy that opens doors for their inclusion in our arts and culture ecosystem.
