To enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities and the under-served by creating music and art opportunities for employment and enjoyment.
To create self-confident agents of change among the disabled and the under-served to dismantle unintended barriers.
The north star for SHOWAbility is to become the Paralympics/Special Olympics of the Arts and Entertainment Industries.
Arts and Entertainment have often been the impetus for positive systemic change worldwide. SHOWAbility, Inc. (formerly ABEL 2, Inc.) is ready to make Georgia the model state and America the global leader in valuing differences and celebrating similarities for a more humane societal view for all people. Almost everyone knows someone, or has a relative, with a disability. Because PwD is the largest minority population with the largest disposable and discretional income of any minority group, the opportunity to impact the lives of nearly half of the people in the world is possible. All it takes is the will and the desire to make a better world for now and in the future. SHOWAbility proves ability through creativity. We believe that everybody deserves a stage and everybody deserves a good time.
Over the years, SHOWAbility has been working to showcase the abilities of people with disabilities (PwD) in hopes of changing the stigma narrative to one of capabilities rather than focusing on their challenges. Thanks to the recent Netflix movie CRIP CAMP, TV Sitcoms like SPEECHLESS, and Reality Shows like AMERICA’S GOT TALENT as well as major corporations embracing “inclusion”; the general population is slowly opening their eyes to recognize that people with disabilities are very capable, just in different ways – differently-able.
