The Working Artists Fund is focused on the disabled adult artist who actively pursues a career or vocation in any artistic field and who occasionally requires financial support to further that career or vocation.
“One way we achieve our mission to increase public awareness of the creative talents of people with disabilities is to arrange for cash grants for disabled artists who are following their dreams to participate in the Arts,” said Michael Dergar, President and CEO of the Pasadena-based Academy of Special Dreams Foundation. “Martin Vogel’s personal story is truly inspirational for our community.”
In an effort to assist the special needs community to achieve their artistic dreams, the Academy of Special Dreams will offer a limited number of college scholarships and working artists grants to those participants who submit their artistic expressions in the competitions sponsored by the Special Academy.
