Epitome of Soul’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is at the forefront of our mission and vision-we were founded with the goal of closing the gap in access to quality arts education for historically marginalized and underserved students in low income communities. We are unwavering in our commitment of embracing and valuing the range of identities that make up the communities that we serve. We encourage our students to embrace their identities, while sparking compassionate curiosity to learn about identities that differ from their own. We believe that the arts are a universal language with the potential to bring people together, and we will continue to ensure that everyone we serve regardless of race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability, feels heard, uplifted, valued, and appreciated.
