CultureALL connects students of all ages with a variety of interactive programs designed to expand their understanding, appreciation and tolerance for the different cultures, religions and beliefs that can add meaning to their own lives.
More effective than books and videos, more than 70 CultureALL Ambassadors share their customs and traditions with students through personal stories, music, art, artifacts and other activities. Developed to expand the depth of curriculum in a variety of subjects, these 30 to 60 minute experiences also expand a student’s view of the world in which they live.
Select multiple CultureALL Ambassador workshops to create a full day of experiences for your students. The CultureALL staff can assist you in designing a full or half day program focused on a single region or a sampling of cultures from around the world. They can also provide guidance on pre and post workshop activities to further enhance the experiences.
This unique seven week photo-ethnography program teaches students to use the art of photography to document, analyze, and appreciate different aspects of their own and other cultures. The project culminates in a public exhibit and artists’ reception that showcases the photographs and changing student perspectives.
Many of our CultureALL workshops can be adapted for college students — from interactive workshops and performances that introduce them to other cultures — to diversity trainings that better prepare them to work in a global economy.
CultureALL programs work well in day camp, afterschool, and summer camp settings. The CultureALL staff will work with you in designing a program that best suits your time frame, budget, and clients.
CultureALL welcomes the opportunity to customize any of our programs to fit your school and curriculum needs. With more than 70 CultureALL Ambassadors, including artists, dancers, musicians, storytellers, and cooks, we definitely have the ability to serve you.
As mandated by Iowa Code256.11, “Global perspectives shall be incorporated into all levels of the educational program.” But it isn’t fair to expect teachers to know everything about every culture. CultureALL can help by providing opportunities to work hand-in-hand with a CultureALL Ambassador, suggest ways in which to integrate cultural experiences into your curriculum, develop service learning projects for students, and more.
CultureALL could not achieve its mission without the generous support of these valued community partners who understand the importance of creating an inclusive community.
