We believe in

• Developing lifelong learners

• Access to quality music and art instruction for ALL

• Access to professional development for directors and instructors

• Discussion of common challenges, priorities, and ways we can learn from each other



• Productively engage with artists, musicians, students, and educators

• Create an environment where original works of art, music, and ideas can happen across cultures, generations, and communities

• Offer participants something they can bring back to implement at their home institution 

• A place where attendees sense that their presence and participation matters, and is a critical part of the experience

• Expand the civic impact of music and arts

• Cultivate attendees’ artistic senses by looking at works of art and music as a group. Collaborative ‘seeing’ has the power to change our artistic assumptions and habits, allowing us to see anew!
