A message from Maure Aronson, Executive Director of World Music/CRASHarts.
Since the launch of World Music/CRASHarts as a nonprofit 501c3 organization in 1990, our mission has been to present the finest traditional and contemporary performing arts from around the world to the broadest possible audience, and to engage individuals in their community and civic life through related artist based educational programs.
World Music/CRASHarts strives to create one-of-a-kind experiences brought about by the interaction of artists and audiences. We embrace the performing arts as a basic form of communication and an essential part of the expression of one’s humanity and full participation in society.
It is our vision for World Music/CRASHarts to bring the transformative power of the arts to a truly diverse audience. We strongly believe that the artistic experience is enriched when it gives people of all cultures the opportunity to have an effect on one another through the freedom of self-expression and the exchange of ideas.
Thank you to our patrons who have embraced the diversity of our performances and entrusted us year after year to select and deliver the most distinctive artists from around the globe. We are committed to continuing to provide you with unique opportunities to explore world culture, and meaningful experiences that leave a lasting impression.
