Raíces Cultural Center
Raíces Cultural Center's Mission Statement
Raíces Cultural Center, a NJ Nonprofit Corporation is interested in the preservation of Caribbean cultures as reflected in music, art, dance, and the spoken word. Raíces Cultural Center's principal goal is the investigation, compilation, documentation, preservation, and dissemination of traditional Caribbean culture through art.
"Raíces" means roots. Raíces Cultural Center has put down its roots in the Hub City of New Brunswick, creating a home for the cultural arts in Central NJ.
Raíces seeks to foster a vibrant community of artists and create a center for exploration, collaboration and cultural fusion within the performing, visual and media arts. We believe that the arts are for everyone, that the creative process is a basic aspect of the human experience, and we encourage all to participate.
Raíces Cultural Center provides the tools, resources and training for artists to succeed creatively as well as sustain themselves economically. Artists are encouraged to make their life around their art and are given the opportunities and venues to support themselves through their work in the arts.
