Our programming is a vibrant reflection of the community that surrounds us. Strathmore believes the most compelling contemplations of our world are created by artists. Amplifying these creative voices is at the heart of our work.

This commitment is made within the broad context of Strathmore’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA) goals to expand access and diversity, promote inclusion, and build equity for all.  With these daily actions, Strathmore intends to become a fully anti-racist organization. You can read more about Strathmore on our website, including information about our mission and values.
