Describe your organization or gallery
ETTA International. (Empowerment Through The Arts) is a new Non-profit that has as it's goal to foster: an arts exchange and training between Artists of all abilities and to create opportunities for the showing and performance of the Arts, re-inventing the perceptions of "ability and dis-ability". 2010 is the 10 Year Anniversary of original performance works for The Rainbow Players and full of community activities to watch for and to get involved in.
