What we do
Arts & Culture Programs

We create programs to explore the arts because hearing different voices and seeing the colorful ways people process life expands our thinking. Art reinforces our humanity by pushing us to consider how others may see our world; when we shed tears over a scene or revisit a piece in our minds, we’re exercising our empathy and imagination. Those moments bring all of us closer and compel us to see the world a bit differently.
