A word from FAME’s new Executive Director, Ella Eggold:

“When I accepted the position of Executive Director at FAME, friends from all over Fort Wayne began sharing how FAME had impacted their lives. They talked about the FAME Festival, Visiting Artists coming to their schools, crafts, singing, and the kindness FAME’s leadership showed them. I am honored to become part of the FAME story and I am excited about the future of FAME as we work together to foster creativity through multicultural arts education.

After a challenging year filled with COVID-19 uncertainties, FAME has the opportunity to impact more schools than ever. I look towards the coming year with optimism for our programming and events. I can’t wait to join you in writing more stories as FAME’s mission and vision continue to impact the lives of Fort Wayne’s children.”
