Cultural Transformation
Values & Goals

Now more than ever, encouraging creativity is essential for our collective well-being. Not only does everyone have a right and responsibility to be creative; imagining and shaping our future is an inherently creative act.

The Wagner Foundation is committed to encouraging visionary individuals, as well as arts institutions that expand cultural access. We welcome creative ideas that challenge convention. Whether this takes the form of disadvantaged groups questioning fundamental issues impacting their lives, or of professional artists challenging us all, we strive to encourage, enable, and teach creativity.

Everyone has a right and responsibility to be creative; to participate in and access culture. Art makes for better students, professionals, and citizens. It is how we explore what could or should be.
