Community Outreach at the Creative Alliance
At the heart of what we do is the notion that we support both the arts in Baltimore and our neighboring communities by connecting the two. We are blessed to reside in the culturally rich neighborhood of Highlandtown at the heart of Southeast Baltimore, steeped in the history of recent immigrants from Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, older immigrants from East and Southern Europe, and white and black Baltimoreans both professional and working class.
Many of our most exciting programs – from family friendly festivals, to ethnic arts workshops, to world music dance parties – both serve these diverse communities and give them a platform to share their cultures with broad audiences.
In addition, we are heavily engaged with our neighborhood partners in community-building efforts, providing resources and programming expertise to initiatives such as Communities for All Ages and the Highlandtown Arts District, and our free out-of-school art classes provide well over a thousand children each year a rare chance to open their minds to the arts.
