Centrum’s mission is to promote creative experiences that change lives.
Through inter-generational immersive workshops, we bring together aspiring and master artists to foster creativity, find and provide mentorship, and build community. Our public performances are the culmination and celebration of our workshops and programs, where we welcome audiences to share in those creative experiences.
Centrum’s vision is of a future where creative artists and learners of all ages and backgrounds connect through direct and shared artistic experiences.
Centrum is committed to providing outstanding service and experiences to our participants, faculty, audiences, volunteers, supporters, and community.
We believe that:
- Creative experiences have the power to change lives
- Traditional art forms, and the cultural context in which they were formed and continue to evolve, are essential keys to our nation’s multicultural heritage and future
- Creative artists and writers thrive in partnership and alliance with others
- A close connection with our community helps us better serve all of our audiences, partners, and neighbors
- There is value in providing an environment for lifelong learning for people of all ages and backgrounds, regardless of their level of expertise or professional aspirations
- A safe and nurturing environment builds confidence and promotes creative expression and critical thinking skills
