What will we do with what we’ve learned in the past 30 months? Join us on this journey.
We know that the presence of art making has made a critical difference in the lives of our young people. Our impact report explores how we have continued to reach and uplift our young people, families, and educators tenaciously through one of the most challenging social times.
Our look back reflects a unique period of time spanning three distinct fiscal years:
- January – December 2019
- January – June 2020
- July 2020 – June 2021
Our report encompasses our most recent pre-pandemic calendar year, the transition to virtual learning due to the COVID-19 campus closure, and a change in fiscal year. Join us as we revisit a combination of key moments and outcomes, as well as offer some future gazing into what possibilities lie ahead.
