Teaching & Schools

Inspiring and teaching current and future generations of arts lovers and educators in the classroom and at the Peace Center.

Peace Passport Field Trips

Curated for all students, our arts programs invite young learners to become global citizens in an active exploration of world music, dance, and theater. The STEM programs unravel the mysteries of the universe through interactive performances that merge science and the arts. By learning about the richness of cultural traditions, scientific discoveries, and works of art – in class and through live performances – students cultivate a global perspective that nurtures empathy and understanding.
