Our Vision is a world where all children have access to artistic expression and nurturing for academic success. Therefore, we are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.


In addition to giving voice to some incredible youth, we believe that audiences can connect and understand diverse life experiences when young people share their stories. This way, we foster awareness and understanding that weakens implicit biases and harmful stereotypes.
