From Diversity to Belonging #2
This second episode will further explore and build on our core construct that America is a Mosaic, underscoring the need for strengthening multicultural communities.
Americans tend to recognize or disown part or all of our history. Each of us sees our future in a specific color (red, blue, brown, black, white). Most of us prioritize a hyphenated identity over our American identity. Mosaic America hopes to address these divisive forces through a movement that propels all of us towards an inclusive and shared future.
Every mosaic has a Place.
Mosaic’s thoughtfully curated programming weaves through the forgotten and remembered journeys in and of a specific Place, presenting living moments that are drawn from all our histories. We work with local artists and community leaders to authentically represent cultures collaboratively and inclusively, to irrevocably cultivate Belonging.
"Mosaic America is an incredible arts experience for our global population. It strengthens the realization that we are truly “one” despite differences in form or style. This “oneness” is embedded into the fabric of Mosaic America’s performance design."
President of Arts Unity Movement non-profit and Artistic Director of NewGround Theatre Dance Company
