Through collaborative programming, WorldBeat and the Centro share an outdoor amphitheater situated between the two cultural centers and used for cermonial dances and other rituals. Balboa Park is a major cultural tourist destination that attracts local, regional, national and international visitors who expect to see and experience the cultural contributions of all San Diego's citizens. WorldBeat Center fills an existing void by becoming the only institution in the park that is dedicated to African and African-American arts and culture.
WorldBeat Center is a combination performance and workshop space presenting art exhibits, film festivals and other performing arts events, as well as workshops on Black history and culture, sound engineering, lighting design, broadcasting and video production. It also serves as a clearinghouse for small, emerging organizations.
