Brazil Center seeks to serve a broad community of all ages and backgrounds by offering opportunities for artists and organizations, and to establish connections by developing cultural and educational experiences through music, dance, film, children's activities, and exhibitions. We have been serving our community since 1999 with BrasilFest, held at Seattle Center, and though community arts programs throughout King County.
We are working towards creating opportunities for artists and young musicians, and developing cultural and educational experiences at our new space. Besides BrasilFest, we have also created Arts Globo, a new program providing an intergenerational safe space, with activities to be scheduled in Des Moines, WA. We are prioritizing services to minorities, vulnerable and at-risk communities and individual artists through arts and educational programs. As part of our recent anti-racism and anti-oppression efforts, we have augmented our Board of Directors to reflect more diversity. Female Board representation is now at 60% and 99% of our Board and staff are immigrants.
