The Magical Experiences Arts Company
MEAC is an ‘Arts serving’ organization that provides innovative and creative theater programming to special education schools and nursing homes. MEAC provides interactive performances which: empower, inspire and educate children, adolescents and adults with severe multiple disabilities in a safe, nurturing environment. The organization’s primary goal is to help develop communication and self-expression skills.
MEAC will make connections throughout the community, bringing together it’s populations in a mutual journey of sharing and exploration of emotional development. How can we help each other to grow, to soar?!
MEAC will strengthen its commitment to bring equality and equanimity to the Disability Community, who historically have been neglected by the Arts. MEAC will act on its desire to expand training and access of its methods and programs to students attending Historic Black Universities in Maryland, with the goal of making sure people of color can choose a career in the Disability Arts. MEAC will expand its programming at the William S. Baer School and RICA-Baltimore, acknowledging our mission to bring therapeutic theater to Baltimore City & County’s most severely disabled youth.
