Project EveryBODY is a collaborative effort among several community organizations focusing on the inclusion of people of all abilities. Project EveryBODY goes beyond single events.   We are proud to facilitate a campaign that promotes inclusivity in all parts of society including film, art, employment, youth causes, and health and recreation.

The goal of Project EveryBODY is to create accessible space to celebrate the talents of people of all abilities and connect a diverse audience to promote inclusion – both in the general community and the workplace. This goal is achieved as we provide an accessible space to artists, job seekers and employers, and more generally a space that encourages people of all abilities to showcase their talents to the public whether it is in the field of Art, Film, Employment. Through these events, we continue to build on community collaboration by engaging additional community agencies, artists, corporate partners, and diverse stakeholders to actively participate and support this project.

Over four months, Project EveryBODY will celebrate the achievements that people of diverse abilities have made, and advocates for thriving communities that are both diverse and inclusive.



Join over 1000 people over 4 months as highlight and showcase the talents of people of all abilities through art, recreation, and employment.
