Evoking a Mosaic of Compassion Through the Performing Arts with Rick Sperling

Rick Sperling is a world-renowned Arts Education, Community Arts and Creative Youth Development pioneer. He is the founder and Artistic Director Emeritus of Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit which he began as a way to address what he calls, "gaps in arts education through the metro Detroit area." During Rick’s 27 years of leadership, Mosaic became a fixture on Detroit's arts scene while frequently earning national media attention. It is known for the high quality (and high energy) of its performances and its ability to propel its students into performing arts careers — and other successes. 

 His most recent endeavor is Sperling Arts Strategies LLC, Which serves as the Arts Consultant for Detroit Public Schools leading the Detroit School of Arts (DSA) Pathways Initiative, connecting 24 Arts Partners with the Detroit School of Arts, and creating Middle School Arts Conservatories.

About the Podcast

Compassionate Las Vegas
Stories of Compassion in Action in the Valley and Across the World
Compassionate Las Vegas - The Podcast is part of the grassroots organization whose mission is to foster the Charter for Compassion and the movement of compassion in the Las Vegas, Nevada area. Compassion acts as our guiding principle. Nearly all moral and religious institutions suggest a version of the Golden Rule that we should "do to others as you would have them do to you", and yet we are a world divided. We believe the need for more compassion is the most pressing issue of our time. There is data to support that love and compassion are not luxuries but are necessities for human survival. We are here to host and inspire a network of compassionate businesses, government institutions, schools, groups, and individuals so that Las Vegas may be a more compassionate place to live, work and play.

We are part of a network of 440 Compassionate Cities in 56 countries and growing daily. Mayor Carolyn Goodman affirmed the Charter on behalf of the City of Las Vegas in 2013.

Compassionate Las Vegas is made possible by the Jameson Foundation in partnership with the Moonridge Group.

Compassionate Las Vegas is new and growing! We are looking for partners from all sectors. If you're interested, please email us at hello@compassionatelv.org
