Raíces Cultural Center, a NJ Nonprofit Corporation, works to preserve Caribbean and other cultures as reflected in music, art, dance, history, and the natural arts. Raíces Cultural Center's principal goal is the investigation, compilation, documentation, preservation, and dissemination of traditional Caribbean culture through art, history, and ecology.
Raíces means roots. Raíces Cultural Center has put down its roots in the Hub City of New Brunswick, creating a home for the cultural arts and sustainable ecology in Central NJ.
Raíces seeks to foster a vibrant community of artists and create a center for exploration, collaboration, and cultural fusion within the performing, visual, and media arts as well as their connection with Nature and Planet Earth. We believe that the arts and Nature form an intrinsic bond between Mother Earth and Humans, and that this collaboration expands the creative process innate in the human experience. We encourage all participants to join this endeavor in the hopes of creating a new consciousness that will re-heal Mother Earth and thereby preserve the global cultural experience.
Raíces Cultural Center provides hands-on opportunities to individuals that wish to learn about sustainable ecology and its connection to culture from an artistic perspective - art, music, dance, spoken word, and folkloric traditions.
