Mission: To cultivate schoolchildren’s creativity for the Fourth Industrial Revolution and grow mutual empathy for “a more perfect union” through the power of the arts.

Vision: Since creativity animates capitalism and empathy cradles democracy, inspire the young to become “creative-empaths”—future leaders who can transform this wounded world into a wondrous one.
