About Our Auction
We hosted 11 mentor/mentee matches between professional graphic artists and young adults with disabilities for 4 work Saturday work sessions in September/October 2017. Each pair designed a poster about a social cause significant to them. Each mentee will receive a copy of their poster. The other copy is being auctioned off to the highest bidder. Funds from this auction will go back into the program for 2018 as we host another group of young graphic designers and their mentors.
About VSA Texas
VSA Texas challenges perceptions of how people contribute by creating an arts-inspired, inclusive community of individuals with diverse abilities. Our goal is to provide support and training to the public, enhance personal growth, and offer Texans access to the creative work of people with diverse abilities.
Giving Voice Austin is our mentoring program in partnership with AIGA. It empowers young adults with disabilities ages 16-22 to give voice to social cause that is important to them. Working together with a professional graphic designer, youth have the opportunity to express something that is significant to them, and, more importantly, have someone to listen. At the same time learning valuable graphic design skills from a professional one-on-one.
