Art-Reach is a Delaware Valley nonprofit cultural service organization that helps underserved audiences to experience arts and cultural programming and that serves as a community resource by increasing accessibility to cultural venues and events. Founded in 1986, Art-Reach annually partners with over 100 human service agencies and schools and over 125 cultural organizations to make the arts more accessible to people with disabilities and economic disadvantages. Through Art-Reach programs each year, over 15,000 people of all ages, economic backgrounds and abilities are able to experience the richness of the arts.

In conjunction with its 20th Anniversary, Art-Reach partnered with EKG to complement its existing programming by offering clients the opportunity to participate in hands-on workshops with local artists. Over 75 participants explored their creativity through a variety of artistic mediums including: photography, ceramics, drawing, bookmaking and sculpture.
