Programs: Hope Stone’s mission is to unlock the innate creativity of young people and adults through our arts outreach programs with a vision of art for all. We are an organization dedicated to nurturing the creative side of children and adults through the positive, empowering experience of the arts. At Hope Stone we believe in Mindfulness Arts Education and are dedicated to this concept in all aspects of our work in the community. Founded in 1997 by its current President & CEO, Jane Weiner, Hope Stone conveys the intrinsic value of the arts through education programs tailored to suit the needs of specific populations of children and adults. Our children’s program (Hope Stone Kids) reaches out to students in a variety of school settings, using highly skilled artists from the artistic disciplines of music, dance, and theater. Hope Stone’s professional dance company (Hope Stone Dance) stages compelling and accessible new works that challenge, entertain, and educate audiences. Recently, Hope Stone has successfully adapted the time-tested methods used in its youth programming to create an arts outreach program for special populations (The Hope Project).
