What drew you to Olive Tree Arts Network?
There are six religions in my immediate family, so interfaith work suits me well. Every day, I am inspired by the magnitude of talent and dedication reflected in the team of OTAN teaching artists. I am grateful to be able to watch the team develop artistically and as accomplished interfaith educators. I learn something new at every event. My favorite part of OTAN is the spark of magic when two kids find something they have in common with each other.
