The Imagination: A Celebration
of Arts and Disability

In June 2010, VSA, The International Organization on Arts and Disability (founded by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith and affiliated with The Kennedy Center), held the largest festival of arts and disability in the world. More than 600 artists from 67 countries converged on Washington, D.C. for the week-long arts festival and educational conferences. This book's intent was to commemorate that moment in VSA's history and also build awareness of VSA and its mission. The book needed to be accessible to people of all abilities and included Braille on the dust jacket, font sizing sensitive to those with low vision, an audio translation for the blind and uncoated paper stock for ease of page turning. It also needed to be beautifully presented -- a piece of art in its own right. Both in its content and design, the book was emblematic of VSA's mission to promote the arts and education for people of all abilities.
