Mission Statement

The mission of World Arts West is to support artists sustaining the world's diverse dance and music traditions by providing needed services and performance opportunities; and deepening the public's support of and engagement with world arts and cultures.

Description

World Arts West is a San Francisco-based, non-profit organization that supports over 450 Bay Area dance companies that are sustaining and celebrating the world's cultural legacy. The work of our organization includes producing and presenting the nationally acclaimed San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival each June. The New York Times called our annual Festival "a glorious achievement...one of the finest of all American dreams: a setting where cultures can celebrate their own traditions while honoring and applauding others."

After three and a half decades of extensive work with artists throughout the Bay Area's diverse communities, World Arts West is being increasingly recognized for creating the epicenter for dance from over 100 unique world cultures, resulting in the most vibrant and diverse dance community in the world. Over the years, the Festivalperformances have featured over 26,000 artists.

World Arts West's vision is to work with artists, organizations, and communities, to advance cultural understanding through dance.
