Our Roots, Our Legacy: World Arts Festival

Mission:

The Black Traditions Concert was created five years ago to celebrate the music, art and works of African-American artists. We aim to enlighten the public and teach them about African-American history and culture through spoken word, monologues, sculptures, paintings, dance, music and all other mediums. For its sixth year we want to include and honor the other cultures that are represented here at the University of the Arts. Our goal is reach out to the student body and call them to bring their history to table and teach the public. Teach them about the meaning behind their cultures music, their dances and their art.

This interdisciplinary collaboration aims to represent the wide cultural diversity of our university and is open to all students.

This will be a three-day event starting February 21st through February 23rd of 2014 held in the Caplan Recital Hall on the 17th floor in Terra Hall.
