Gifts in Action

Members of Ingoma Nshya, the Women Drummers of Rwanda, play large African drums with Virginia Tech students during a class visit. The drummers are Black women in colorful, patterned dresses with rainbow colored braids pulled back into ponytails.

We have accomplished so much at the Moss Arts Center since we opened our doors in 2013, and we know this important work is going to continue to strengthen and prosper thanks to the generous support of our donors.

You are the reason we can bring life-transforming opportunities to Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff; students from pre-kindergarten through highschool; and community members.

Your support allows us to offer master classes, workshops, and special performances to elementary, middle, high school, and college-aged students. These experiences show them how the arts can be a unifying force that bridges cultural, religious, ethnic, and economic differences.

We are excited by the extraordinary artists we bring. Through them, we find nearly limitless potential to activate learning, invite deep reflection, and cultivate understanding and empathy for other human beings.

We find ways to bring so many people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests into these experiences — and thereby into personal connections to the power of the arts. We couldn't do it without your support.
