The GLOBAL EDUCATION CENTER is a nonprofit arts education center for students, teachers and the community in the area of multicultural, anti-bias education. Using the arts as a pathway to understanding the various cultural, ethnic and religious groups residing in our community, the Center’s staff and teaching and performing artists present ongoing classes, workshops, lecture-demonstrations and performances to promote cross-cultural understanding and respect. The overall goal is to highlight the commonalties of all people while creating experiences in the arts that aid in dispelling myths, dismantling stereotypes, unlearning biases and alleviating fears.
To use the arts of diverse cultures:
- To highlight the commonalties of all people
- To promote global awareness and concern
- To develop empathy, understanding and respect for the individual and for all of humanity
- To support the Center’s belief that fairness and justice are basic human rights for all
