Vision & Strategic Plan


We believe that designers, artists, architects, performers, and creative scholars are essential to society. Not only do these individuals solve complex problems, they advance society. Creativity enhances our culture, broadens our perspectives, and deepens our understanding of the world around us. It allows us to innovate, grow, and change. Our vision is founded on the notions of freedom of thought and the sustenance of a healthy democratic environment through the “continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found.”
