Our mission is “to expand and enrich the life of the community through participation in the arts.” Our definition of community includes many different people from many different backgrounds. In supporting Black Lives Matter, Arts & Education at the Hoyt is acknowledging that there are systems of power that grant privilege and access unequally, resulting in inequity and injustice towards people of color.  To those hurt and/or enraged by the death of George Floyd and countless others, we respond, “We hear you.”  In fact, so clearly that we are holding ourselves accountable for change until all people – regardless of race, age, gender, religion, identity, sexual orientation, income or experience – feel as if they belong here, too.  As far as we are concerned, you do.  Here’s how you can get engaged:
