Culture inspires.

We believe an education rich in the arts, humanities, and sciences is essential for all students. These disciplines foster deeper understanding of the human experience, creativity, imagination, and empathy. Through grants, research, and advocacy, we work with schools and community organizations to expand access to arts education and creative learning through the humanities and sciences.
