Anthropomorphic Arts and Education, Inc (AAE) is a non-profit 501c(3) corporation that supports educational and charitable activities of interest to fans of anthropomorphic art and animals in general. Anthropomorphic or "furry" fandom has been around for many decades now in its current form and the interest goes back many centuries to at least as far back as Aesop's fables. As the fandom has grown, an opportunity became evident to provide a more professional and broad based organization to support its many, varied activities. AAE is an institution that is trying to fill that opportunity.
AAE is involved with organizing conventions of like-minded people, educating the public and fandom on matters of interest to the fandom, and supporting charitable interests who charters align with its own. As AAE continues to grow, its activities will continue to increase, taking a larger role and helping to build the anthro community and the perception of it by the public through professionalism, honesty, civility...and fun.
AAE currently sponsors Further Confusion, an annual convention that raises funds and donations on behalf of worthy charities, conducts seminars, and provides a gathering place for the community of the fandom. Historically AAE has also sponsored the Anthropomorphic Fandom Repository, a library dedicated to preserving the history of and educating scholars about anthropomorphic fandom, and Furdance, a benefit dance benefiting Pet Therapy.
