And, as one of the nation's premier creators of inspirational-arts projects, we produce educational initiatives, music, cultural festivals, concert events, video documentaries, theatrical productions, art exhibitions, and other signature works to provoke the change we seek in our community.
From all indications, our mission appears to be working… and growing! Since our founding in 2003, our projects have reached a global audience of nearly 10 million.
