How Can We Bring People Together Through Storytelling?

From the beginning of time, humans have told stories. From sitting around a fire to sharing legends to the next generations, stories have shaped our human and cultural identity.

We believe that through mutual cultural storytelling, we can find similarities and beauty in all ancient mythology, legends, and modern faiths. We can realize that we are all part of a greater family and have beautiful stories to tell and lessons to teach each other. We can come into the awareness that we are all connected and have a common home – Earth.

How Can The Arts Bring People Together?

Through the arts, we can express our emotions, our cultural identity, and send a message to the world. No matter where we are from, all humans and cultures are creative and have expressed themselves through the arts, going all the way back to the first cave paintings made 14,000 years ago.

Nature has always  been an expression of beauty, through all forms of art that surround us. Creativity has the power to bring people together as they share their ideas and cultures!
