The Arts Express Share project aim is to mobilize funds to accord students with disabilities musical and art supplies as an outlet to creative and self-expression. Our hope is that through the art and musical instruments alongside training, the level of participation, or inclusion in arts programs among young people with disabilities will improve significantly. In doing this, we are also after the students all round well- being which include increase in self esteem and self-worth that is born by creating something new or beautiful that connects with others and encourages socialization.
