VPA = Visual and Performing Arts

I encountered the acronym ‘VPA’ in the description of an academy as being for ‘STEM and VPA’. Everyone knows what ‘STEM’ means, but ‘VPA’ had me stumped, except that by context it was something on the humanities side. So I looked it up in the acronyms section of the free dictionary by Farlex, and found a list of possible meanings, and the one I cited is almost certainly the one intended.
Here’s the link to the list of meanings given by Farlex.

Remembering Fran Ank

In August 2001 the Israelis killed a 4-year-old Palestinian girl.

I don’t know her real name, so I am giving her the name Fran Ank.

If I ever forget thee, Oh Fran, may my right hand wither and my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth!
