These programs contribute to the richness and strengths of our communities and economy. An FAEA vision: Equity and culture elevates the quality of life in all our communities and drives arts education growth across the creative economy. These programs are inclusive and equitable, and embrace diversity; these programs empower a new generation through creative youth development and education.
The K through 12 arts in education and FAEA have a focus on: advancing inclusion and equity, enriching communities through arts curriculum, growing the creative economy, and empowering a creative generation. The arts will build individualized capacity in every school.
