Mission Statement

Levantine Cultural Center champions a greater understanding of the Middle East and North Africa by presenting artistic and educational programs that bridge political and religious divides. In a search for common ground, the Center fosters discussions among artists and thinkers and offers classes and workshops that serve diverse ethnic communities.

Description

Founded during the summer of 2001 by Americans of Middle Eastern heritage, Levantine Cultural Center has presented hundreds of public programs that offer alternatives to the myths, stereotypes and negative news about the Middle East conveyed in mainstream media.

We partner with community groups and artists that engage in cross-cultural initiatives or the education of a broader public with cultural/social relevance. We strive to work collaboratively with multigenerational, multiethnic, multidisciplinary and/or broad geographic communities in response to cultural/social issues articulated by those communities.

Levantine Cultural Center is strongly non-partisan and non-sectarian. We do not espouse any political or religious doctrine, and we are committed to the principles of cross-cultural cooperation.
