Our Values


We believe that everyone deserves to be included and respected in society, regardless of their abilities and backgrounds. We foster a culture of inclusion and diversity, where people of determination can feel welcomed and valued.


We believe that art is a powerful tool for self-expression and empowerment. We nurture the creativity and talents of our student artists and provide them with opportunities to showcase their work and share their stories.


We believe that we are stronger together. We build a community of support and friendship among our student artists, their families, our staff, our volunteers, and our partners. We also connect with the wider community through our events and activities and inspire them with our inclusive vision.


We believe that we have a responsibility to protect and preserve our environment. We practice sustainability by reusing, reducing, recycling, and upcycling materials for our artworks. We also educate our student artists and the community about the importance of environmental awareness and action.
