Program Coordinator - Muse 360 Arts

Founded in 2004 Muse 360 Arts is a non-profit that provides youth ages 3-21 and their families access to affordable and high-quality arts-focused programming and experiences. We deeply believe that learning is centered in the process of inquiry, self-discovery, and creative expression. With these tenets in mind we offer our youth the environment and the tools they need to take risks, think critically, and work creatively within and across disciplines in each of our three programs: Rayn Fall Dance Studio, New Generation Scholars, and Spark of Genius.

Each of these programs is rooted in instilling the core values of artistic excellence, civic engagement, and creative entrepreneurship through the use of an African-diasporic-focused curriculum. This method allows our students and scholars to develop a sense of self and a greater understanding of their history as they grow and develop themselves in the areas of literary, visual, performing arts, critical thinking, and leadership.
