Exec­utive Director's Artis­tic State­ment
No.9 accomplishes its mis­sion through two inter-related programmat­ic approaches.

No.9's public art programs
Art is the expe­ri­ence of perceiving, and this expe­ri­ence can help lead to a pos­itive glob­al vision of a sustainable future.

Art is the expe­ri­ence of perceiving, in which ones imag­ination is stim­ulated, person­al cre­ativ­ity is nur­tured and innovative thought is provoked. Public Art is the communal ver­sion of this expe­ri­ence and can act as a cat­a­lyst for cultur­al dia­logue and change. As a society we are currently driv­en by the desire for a lifestyle of per­pet­ual growth that is not socially or envi­ron­mentally sustainable. Vision­ary voic­es are needed to inspire a cultur­al shift towards a glob­al sustainable lifestyle. No.9's mis­sion is to pro­vide the public forum and support for these voic­es so that pos­itive envi­ron­mental change can occur.

No.9 Eco­logical Lit­eracy Out­reach Educational Program
If our expectation is for the cre­ative class of the next generation to drive the new green econ­o­my then our objective must be to take on the responsibility of pro­viding that generation with the nec­essary tools to do so. A cre­ative work force pre­pared to deal with the envi­ron­mental chal­lenges of the 21st centu­ry will be realized through extensive and per­vasive education in integrated eco­logical lit­eracy.
