Our Mission

Fuse is dedicated to making the arts more accessible in our local and global communities through the collaborative creation and presentation of art. Our goals are to innovate the arts through modern technologies, educate our local and global communities through diverse programs, and actively identify and address stigmas in the arts. 

Our Vision

Fuse brings artists, community members, and businesses together as a collective to break down the barriers around creating, sharing, and experiencing art.


Our Values



Increase accessibility of programs and content



A fresh and innovative organization with a community-focused collective



Inclusive, diverse, and people-focused space

What sets us apart

Building on the inclusive foundations of our opera program, Fuse is an inter-arts revolution fueled by young volunteerism.  


Fuse is a one-of-a-kind collective connecting our communities with art.


We’re all about sparking a movement in the arts that breaks down barriers, elevates artists, and provides opportunities.  


Fuse responds to the community's need for connection and art by bringing us together physically and digitally to participate in and support arts.


Fuse is the place for anyone and everyone to discover the arts.
