Welcome to the ETTA Homepage



Empowerment Through The Arts, (ETTA) International is a creative partnership of individuals, human service agencies, artists, therapists and arts organizations dedicated to creating inclusive programming and ARTS opportunities for the enrichment and empowerment of individuals labeled as “developmentally disabled”. ETTA International is dedicated to offering training in the arts to ALL abilities. Inclusion in the Arts and Culture increases the benefit for the entire community.

We seek community partners and multi-year funding sources as well as donations for the operation of this unique new non-profit.
