To play a key role in creating an artistically aware and appreciative community of people from all sectors of society regardless of age, race, gender, sexual-orientation, religion and socio-economic background. This will be done through the following objectives:

  • To shape an environment which inspires learning, creativity, freedom of expression and the gaining of new perspectives.
  • To provide holistic, high quality creative and performing arts learning opportunities¬†by offering a variety of classes and workshops and maintaining a faculty of dynamic, committed and inspiring artist educators.
  • To provide world-class performances and exhibitions of both local and international artists of many diverse genres.
  • To bring our activities and environment to individuals and groups in the greater community who would not otherwise be involved in the arts by investing in partnerships with schools and community-based organizations.
  • To enable people with career aspirations in the arts to reach new levels of artistic achievement and professionalism in their areas of expertise.
  • To develop a network of artists and arts supporters.
