Want to hear something fab? Check out Chicago Athletic Association’s podcast episode featuring Arts of Life through the voices of Vincent Uribe and Hector Jones! This dynamic duo muses on the philosophy of Arts of Life, contemporary art and disability services with honesty, humor and grace.

When asked what message he hopes the podcast delivers Hector Jones said, “To know that even though the state is very low when it comes to helping [people with disabilities] out—we are not down and out. When it comes down to it we are the same as other people. We just have different ways of figuring things out. We have to believe in ourselves.”
