MUSE is a project of Arts Ignite (formerly ASTEP), a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization (EIN: 20-4532991). All donations for MUSE are 100% tax deductible. Donors do not receive any goods or services in return for their contributions.
MUSE is committed to creating diversity within the music departments of the theatre industry by providing access, internships, mentorships, and support to historically marginalized people of color. We recognize the lack of opportunities particularly for black and brown artists looking to pursue careers in this field. Our mission is to cultivate more racial equity in theatrical music departments by providing access, internships, mentorships, and support to historically marginalized people of color. MUSE aims to challenge systemic acts of exclusion and support musicians as we transition to a more diverse and inclusive environment for all.
