Our Purpose is to inform people about each other's culture and to promote unity and diversity.
WorldBeat Center provides a needed opportunity for expanded awareness andappreciation of the African Diaspora by all San Diego's residents and many visitors. we feel that there must be a visible multicultural presence in San Diego and that this presence should take the form of a facility providing ongoing programs and services for children, the elderly and everyone in-between.
WorldBeat Productions works to achieve this goal through the establishment of WorldBeat Center, which will celebrate the indigenous world cultures of African descent, from the South Pacific to Brazil and Africa, as well as African-American folk art from the Missippi Delta to the Sea Islands off the Carolinas.
Through collaborative programming, the WorldBeat Center and the Centro Cultural de la Raza share an outdoor amphitheater situated between the two cultural centers and used for ceremonial dances and other rituals. The WorldBeat Center is a combination performance and workshop space that presents 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 clearing house for small, engineering organizations, such as the African-American Writers and Artists and Teye Sa Thiosanne. Outreach programs afford the community at large continuous and frequent access to the many forms of artistic expression generated by the center.
