To deliver on our mission to foster the fulfillment of learning at every age, REF believes the cultural arts are as essential to educational fulfillment as breathing is to life. We believe the arts are an empowering teacher, offering multiple perspectives and ways to interpret the world. Art teaches that problem solving is complex, dynamic and full of unforeseen opportunities and paths toward solutions. Art expresses where words fail.
REF will continue to encourage the expression of Cultural Arts in Redding by investing resources, be they financial or otherwise, to celebrate the arts in all its varied forms in the schools and community.
Please visit the GRANTS FUNDED page to see some of the investments REF has made in the Cultural Arts.
REF looks forward to your feedback (firstname.lastname@example.org)
