The Alexander Art Foundation is the official nonprofit partner of A Cultivated Mindset...

As a team, we help improve communities by addressing issues fundamental to diverse citizens. Organizations approach and integrate arts, digital media, and technology into their youth programs, practices, and philosophies. The Alexander Art Foundation has chosen a framework created by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in connection with its grant-making initiative on Digital Media and Learning.

This framework will help organizational efforts related to arts, digital media, and technology and establish a true building block close to all economic and digital divides in the community.

As a technology institution, we respond in two ways—by helping to address the immediate need and longer-term solutions for economic self-sufficiency via arts, digital media, and technology. We’re investing $100,000 over five years in this effort.
