Changing Worlds’ mission is to foster inclusive communities through oral history, writing and art programs that improve student learning, affirm identity and enhance cross-cultural understanding.

Programmatic Approach

Our unique programming approach integrates cultural, family and community histories with writing and the arts to help participants explore their own backgrounds, promote peace and learn about others while strengthening their academic and arts learning skills.

  • We work toward our mission through separate yet interconnected program areas that include:
  • In-School and After-School Partnerships
  • Teacher Professional Development workshops, seminars and institutes

Community Outreach Initiatives such as traveling exhibits, short-term programs, collaborative partnerships and special events
