Arts and cultural participation as individuals and in community provide us with a way of making meaning of our personal human experiences and the world around us. Deep inquiry through observation, dialogue, research, reflection, and art making ground learning in an intensely personal way. The focus of that inquiry may be almost anything: another culture, a global challenge, a social issue, personal development, or even a pursuit in science or history. Beyond knowledge is the power to create as an expression of understanding — individually and communally. Making meaning through performance and visual media has been practiced by humans since ancient times. The Cultural Arts Coalition continues this practice.
Our approach to wholistic, project-based learning is through a methodology we call the "Six C's of Human Technology" a model created as a reflection on years of youth-development work by the CAC founders.
