The Cathedral Arts Project is a nationally recognized nonprofit provider of quality, comprehensive and ongoing instruction in the visual and performing arts for school-aged children in Duval County. The driving force behind all CAP programs is the belief that the arts matter – they provide essential skills, like creative thinking, perseverance, teamwork and self-discipline, that benefit all people in all areas of their lives.
Voted one of the best places to work in Jacksonville, CAP offers a culture of creativity and collaboration in the heart of downtown Jacksonville.
The arts have the power to inspire, unite and create change in our community. CAP values authentic self- expression and is committed to fostering and maintaining an inclusive, supportive and safe environment for all. CAP respects and values all identities and differences (race and ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, language, culture, national origin, religious commitments, age, (dis)ability status, and political perspective) and proactively pursues, engages, seeks to understand and draws from a variety of diverse perspectives.
At CAP, we are stronger together. We empower and invest in the wellbeing and development of our team to allow creativity and innovation to thrive. We collaborate by actively inviting and appreciating the contribution and participation of all our stakeholders. At CAP, we put students first. We create, identify and leverage resources and relationships to provide access and equity in arts education that impacts children’s lives beyond the classroom.
