Sarasota Performing Arts Center Foundation’s Artist-in-Residence program brings a nationally recognized artist to the Gulf Coast Region to engage in artistic exploration of a community need. The 2023 residency answers the question: What does accessibility in the arts mean, and what does it look like in our community?

Our 2023 Artist-in-Residence, Adrian Anantawan, is a world-class violinist and educator born without a right hand who now advocates for people with disabilities. In January 2023, he addressed accessibility and the arts through a week of performances, lectures, and workshops while also building and strengthening relationships with individuals with disabilities in the Sarasota community.
