Artists Unlimited

Air Date: 
Oct 28, 2016

It's unfortunate, but there's a common assumption in our society that if you're living with a disability, you can't be artistic, you can't contribute and you can't possibly be creative. Well, these assumptions couldn't be further from the truth. Just look at local theatre company Artists Unlimited. They aren't just inclusive of people with disabilities, they're all about highlighting abilities! Aired 10/28/16. 

Roberta Estes

Air Date: 
Aug 19, 2016

For nearly two decades, Seneca Falls artist, Roberta Estes kept a secret from the world. She had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Her diagnosis was hidden from nearly everyone around her and art was her only escape. Unfortunately, there is a sense of shame attached to having a mental illness, and the stigma of this invisible illness was too much for Roberta to confront -- until now. Through her art, Roberta has finally come forward to say to the world that mental illness doesn't define her, being an artist does! Aired 8/19/16.

Community Arts Connection

Air Date: 
Apr 01, 2016

What do you get when you mix art and day-habilitation? You get creativity, happiness, opportunity and confidence - you also get the Arc of Monroe's program, Community Arts Connection. They're working to ensure that ALL of us have the opportunity to express ourselves. Take a look! Aired 4/1/16.
