Dismantle the academic canon, and build a robust, diverse, and ever-evolving understanding of the interconnected landscape of art.

Today: When we hear "arts" we often think Fine Arts, and we think about the academics of the fine arts and the associated core competencies and the canon of what is taught at conservatories or universities, which is predominantly white, eurocentric art and art history. But the arts are all around us in all sorts of forms, and artistic practice can be learned outside of the academic setting.

Vision: We have dismantled the traditional academic canon of "fine arts," and we have built a robust, diverse, and ever-evolving understanding of the interconnected landscape of artistic and creative practices. We have not dismissed the works that are a part of the traditional canon, but we have added so much more nuance and dimension to it by including other forms and practices and decolonizing our understanding of what art can be and how it has emerged through time.
