Creating the Spark
In 1972, founder Lillian C. Embick had a vision to bring joy and attention to people in nursing homes. With the support of her husband, Byron, she created a community-based non-profit arts organization that has reached more than 2.8 million audience members through music and the arts.
51 years later, her vision has blossomed into a nonprofit organization that serves Allen, DeKalb, Noble, LaGrange, Steuben, Wells, and Whitley counties. From long-term care facilities to hospitals to day car centers, Audiences Unlimited, Inc. reaches those with diverse needs and abilities.
