Along our journey from Vera Causa Opera to Fuse, we’ve added some new faces to our team! At this time last year (March 2020) we had four team members – we’ve now grown to over 25 members! All of Fuse’s team members are volunteers that are passionate about the arts. Fuse has created five new departments including:
Administration, Research & Development
Each volunteer in every department brings unique skill sets to our organization, helping to further our goal of making arts more accessible to all!
Let’s take a moment to meet the folks that make Fuse tick!
