The Arts and Cultural Attractions Council, known as the ACA, is a membership network of decision-makers representing the arts and cultural attractions of the Greater Louisville Region and Southern Indiana. In the ACA, leaders of regional arts groups work together to identify common goals and pursue projects and events that accomplish their common objectives.
The ACA unites our members to leverage the collaborative power of the region’s arts and culture sector.
A thriving, integrated arts and culture sector makes our community a vibrant place to live, learn, work, and play.
YES does not sit on the fence. YES does not resist change. YES overcomes convention, kindles creativity and sparks innovation. YES summons artists, dreamers, makers and thinkers to help the community become a richer place to live.
In 2015 over 100 of the region’s diverse and dynamic arts and cultural organizations will unite and use the power of YES to accomplish something greater than any one organization could do on its own.
This year-long festival is YES! Fest — A Year of Environment and Sustainability. YES! Fest will provide a platform to explore the important topic of the environment and sustainability. Through collaborative efforts as well as individual organizational programming, YES! Fest will connect the arts, culture and the environment in an innovative way that will engage dialogue and thoughtful conversation throughout our community.Learn About YES! Fest

Sustainable Braille: The History of Paperless Braille
Through December 31, 2015
See calendar for times
Just as the print industry is moving away from paper books and magazines, printing for blind readers has also been shifting away from paper braille. Some of this has to do with improved industrial efficiency, but the computerization of braille and the use of electronic braille displays also plays an important part. In 1964, APH embossed 68 million pages of braille and printed 12 million pages of large type. Last year, serving more readers, APH embossed only 17 million pages of braille and printed 14 million pages of large type. That is a lot less paper, requiring a lot less trees. The exhibit will explore the history of computerized braille, notetakers like the Braille 'n Speak, and the rise of the refreshable braille display, as well changes in industrial production that reduce the amount of paper we consume each year.
