The organization is apolitical, non-profit and its aim is to empower and improve the lives of the youths and children

We work hard to realize a vision for the arts and arts education. That vision is informed by our belief in the following core values:

  • The arts are fundamental to humanity and have the power to transform lives.

  • Arts education develops well-rounded Youths and children.

  • Artistic expression connects people from around the globe.

  • The arts, broadly defined, are essential to a thriving community, creating a sense of place and fueling social and economic growth.

  • In order to thrive, the arts in Africa—and broad access to them—need an investment of a mix of public, private and consumer resources.



Our work translates national vision into local tools that can be used by the wide variety of organizations and individuals that are our members. They include cultural and arts service organizations as well as arts educators, arts administrators, artists, and the general public.
