Cultural Programs

Studies have shown that exposure to arts and cultural programs stimulates young people’s minds and that these are an excellent way of building inclusive societies, promoting personal growth and bridging social divides often found in Latin America. Further, the region has an incredibly rich and diverse cultural heritage – including a population comprising numerous ethnic and indigenous groups – that must be preserved. Our partners offer diverse arts and cultural programs for marginalized youth, as well as cultural centers, museums, institutes and foundations, which promote cultural preservation and provide access to art, science and cultural works for all sectors of society. Programs include:

• Art and cultural activities such as theater, poetry, dance and music that promote self-esteem, creativity and social skills
• Dramatic arts programs as a vehicle for self-expression and action
• Visual arts to enhance understanding of social issues and human rights
• Workshops on social and cultural movements
• Cultural and historic restoration projects
