CultureALL™ is a Des Moines based-non-profit organization that involves Iowans in learning about other world cultures. These discovery-filled experiences strengthen understanding and appreciation of one another in our daily lives. CultureALL in the Classroom provides what text books and research projects cannot: real-life interactions with people from other cultures. CultureALL in the Community presents unique events that make Central Iowa a vibrant and attractive place for Global Citizens to live, study and work.

CULTUREALL™ is a great way to show my students there is a different world outside of Urbandale.

It's Not Too Late

Did You Have a Chance to Visit an Exhibition of Our 
Photo-Ethnography project with Des Moines Public Schools?

Last fall, students in Sociology classes at East, Lincoln and North High Schools have been working with CultureALL Ambassadors and professional photographers to explore the culture through photography.  Their work was on display at Grand View College and in the downtown skywalk in December, and at the Ruan Center, in the the lobby at Bankers Trust in January.


If you missed the exhibition, you can still see some student photos in a digital display at the Science Center of Iowa's exhibit on Race.  Or view our album of student photos and essays on our Facebook page.


For more about this project, check out the video on our YouTube Channel:
