At the Cathedral Arts Project, our vision is for every child in Northeast Florida to have access to a well-rounded, arts-rich education that endows his or her spirit with the imagination, self-confidence and strength of character that inspires great leadership and a will to succeed. Our mission is to enrich the quality of life in Northeast Florida through unleashing the creative spirit of young people. By providing access to instruction in the visual and performing arts, we empower underserved, school-aged children to succeed in all areas of their lives.
For many of our students, when they create a work of art or complete a musical, dramatic or dance performance, it is the first time in their lives they have accomplished something positive and beautiful. Seeing their work on exhibit or hearing applause while on stage, they realize they are successful, valuable individuals, and as such have a future beyond their current social and economic situations. They are motivated to set goals, finish school and become productive adults. We are committed to serving the children and youth of Northeast Florida and believe participation in the arts can be the catalyst for extraordinary change.
We believe all children deserve instruction in the visual and performing arts. In principle and in practice, the Cathedral Arts Project aims to provide equal access to arts instruction, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, race, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation and geographic location within our service area of Duval County, Florida.
The Cathedral Arts Project is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
