National Federation of the Blind Performing Arts Division

The National Federation of the Blind Performing Arts Division, a strong and proud division of the National Federation of the Blind, works to provide equality and opportunity to blind performers. If you would like to pursue a career in the performing arts, blindness should not hold you back.

We seek to connect blind performers of any genre and experience level so that we may share tips and strategies and learn from one another. It is our goal to educate the public on the capabilities of the blind who choose to work in the performing arts or perform for recreation. We invite you to stand alongside us as we remove barriers and encourage each other to take the stage and live out our dreams.
