Staying true to what we hold dear.
Access and belonging – We value engaging a larger, more inclusive “we” that embraces our diverse identities and communities as positive and enhancing who we are, while acknowledging our shared humanity.
Diversity – We embrace all the ways in which people, art, thought, perspectives, and values differ.
Community – We view our audiences, artists, patrons, neighbors, and collaborators as essential community stakeholders and consistently seek to expand the role of the arts as an essential community resource.
Excellence – We work to ensure that our efforts result in the highest quality experience for all participants and embrace our region’s hallmarks of innovation and creativity.
Stewardship – We are conscientious caretakers of our unique property, safeguarding and improving our gardens, grounds, and buildings in ways that also sustainably protect the earth’s environment.
