ABOUT CATA

Community Access to the Arts (CATA) is a non-profit arts organization that nurtures and celebrates the creativity of people with disabilities through shared experiences in the visual and performing arts. Through a rich array of arts workshops—in painting, dance, theater, singing, drumming, juggling, yoga, creative writing, and more—CATA artists tap into their potential, explore new talents, and share their unique points of view.

Beginning with one workshop in 1993, CATA has since grown to more than 1,300 workshops annually, actively involving hundreds of individuals and many partner organizations from across Berkshire and Columbia counties.
