We believe the arts engage, connect, and empower students, teaching them skills and passions to last a lifetime. Through the Education Alliance partnering with schools and the community, we work to create equitable and inclusive access to the arts for all students countywide. Visit the Education Alliance page to learn more about what we do to achieve these goals!

One of our main purposes is to make the arts sector equitable and inclusive for local artists and community members. We actively seek to transform the county’s arts sector to uplift underserved communities through various programs including but not limited to our series of Equity Roundtables where we gather members of the public to discuss what priorities and steps we need to take to make Napa County’s arts and culture sector open and available to all.
Our community is empowered by information, and one aspect of our work is gathering information about our community. We use it to properly represent the arts community in policy and funding discussions.
