Founded in 1992, Creative Connections is a non-profit international cultural education organization that fosters global competency in children. They do this by creating and facilitating innovative arts-based exchanges between classrooms in the United States and their peers around the world.
Creative Connections has expanded from initially working annually with 300 students to over 10,000 students today. They currently have school partners on five continents in 23 countries. In the USA, they facilitate programs in 114 classrooms across eight states.
Creative Connections’ mission is to educate young people by encouraging their awareness, understanding, and appreciation of other cultures, as well as their own.
They deliver their mission through programs that employ the visual and performing arts, along with videoconferencing and social media technology.
