As a non-profit multi-cultural arts organization, we are dedicated to promoting, presenting and preserving the African and Indigenous cultures of the world through Music, Art, Dance, Education, Technology, and Sustainability. We are located in Balboa Park, down from the world famous, San Diego Zoo. WorldBeat Cultural Center (WBCC) is the first solar building in Balboa Park and the second LEED-certified building (Leadership Energy Efficiency Design). WBCC is one of the winners (2015) of Balboa Park Sustainability Award. In 2015, we also received our first National Science Foundation Grant through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
WorldBeat Center’s Children's Ethnobotany Peace Garden is located south of our front entrance and is dedicated to ethnobotanist, George Washington Carver. WBC’s Children’s Peace Garden serves as an Outdoor Classroom that provides programming in Urban Birding, Citizen Science, Ethnobotany and Organic Gardening.
We offer classes and events in music and dance from around the globe including African, Middle-Eastern, Brazilian, Japanese, and more. We have top instructors who teach yoga and QiGong free to the community. We are dedicated to the health and wellness of the planet through regular lectures and workshops on health awareness. We are known for event and concert production. WBCC has been producing Tribute to the Reggae Legends such as Bob Marley (Bob Marley Day has been our largest fundraiser), film festivals, and other indigenous community events. We believe these events give the San Diego community an enriching awareness of diverse cultures. WBCC's efforts are focused on creating unity within diversity. WorldBeat Cultural Center can be your passport to the world.
We welcome you to volunteer at a cultural center that is making a difference on the planet. Pay It Forward.
