Bringing World Communities
to Your Classroom

What IS World Culture in Context?

Through World Culture in Context, students discover artists who are connected to communities around the world and engage directly with these artists to learn more about how they have been shaped by place. This program will inspire students to think deeply about their own communities of influence.

Each program includes:

  • A moderated, remote visit between your students and the artist.
  • A custom video of the artist highlighting their tradition and art, making the visual connection between place and practice.
  • Learning guides designed for teachers by arts integration specialists including pre and post visits activities designed to align with Common Core standards.

What Some of Our Teachers are Saying

Jontavious … really brought the curriculum to life… He even made a song up on the spot using student suggestions! My students loved it and asked if he was coming back!
Sarah Tiede, Middle School Chorus teacher in Lewisburg, PA
This program allowed my students to connect with an elder artist and learn more about their tradition and culture. My students enjoyed the pre-visit activities, including creating music with found objects from where we live.
Abigail Shell, Elementary School teacher in Baltimore, MD
The Barrier Island Center has loved partnering on the World Culture in Context program. Through the marvel of technology, Eastern Shore of Virginia students from both public and private schools enjoyed virtual visits with artists from all over the globe!
