We have a new website!!!

Check it out at Notable features include an Artist Directory where you can search for artists with disabilities who work in a variety of media. We really encourage artists to submit their information through the submissions page on our website to join this directory. We also post our news and upcoming events regularly on the site for your convenience. Additionally, you can sign up for a membership or buy our Artist Cards.

We have done our best to make this site as accessible as possible. If you do come across any accessibility pitfalls, please let us know.

Kickstart has just released a set of beautiful cards (see above) featuring the work of Deborah Leigh, Kathryn Alma-Nihte, Yuki Goodman, L.J. Throstle, and Kevo Lee. The set comes with 5 cards that are 5" x 7", 5 envelopes, and 1 informational postcard. And for only $20!

All proceeds go directly to Kickstart to help pay for artist fees, programming, administrative costs, and the list goes on. We have paid all 5 artists for the rights to use their artwork on these cards.

You can buy yours right now by going to our website at:
or call us and order them over the phone at 1-604-343-9141.

Please share the information!
And thank you for supporting Kickstart!
