Artistic career endeavors might not be the most realistic dream for a youth with a disability. Performing arts are at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the arts business world. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a world leader in providing opportunities for young adults with disabilities.

A young man with a disability discusses his experiences with the director of accessibility at the JFK Center for Performing Arts.
