Brushes for Change:
Art as a Path
to Cultural Understanding

Art is a powerful medium that gives voice to our diverse range of lived experiences. It is our one true global language. This workshop recognizes the power of the creative arts to deepen cultural understanding and to forge meaningful connections. In this hands-on experiential session, participants will learn simple arts-based and creative mindfulness techniques that they can use with students and colleagues to explore cultural differences, foster intercultural dialogue and cross-cultural understanding, build bridges of empathy, respond to challenging world events, and to break down barriers to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment both in and out of the classroom.
