  • What is Arts Access?

    Arts Access is ODC’s organizational-wide program that offers a limited number of additional subsidies for performance tickets and classes for those where price is a barrier.

    For adult classes, Arts Access is an additional 50% subsidy to the drop-in rate. To qualify, students must complete a short application. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and approved applicants will be enrolled in the Arts Access program for up to 6 months. After that point in time, they are welcome to reapply.
