The Academy of Special Dreams Foundation believes that all persons, regardless of their disabilities, should have equal opportunities to express their talents and to be successful in the arts.
The October Disability Art Exhibit at Los Angeles City Hall featured Academy of Special Dreams Foundation and LIFT artists.
The Academy of Special Dreams Foundation organized its first ever global project that served the special needs community in Mexico in December.
“This financial support will continue our mission to provide micro business opportunities for artists helping them make their dreams come true," said Michael Dergar, Academy founder and CEO.
LIFT North (Learning Independence for Transition) is still going strong in the second year of its organic herbs micro business.
The Academy of Special Dreams recently provided two small grant awards for artists with disabilities at two special educational transition programs in the San Gabriel Valley area: LIFT North and LIFT South.
