The WHCC’s mission is to make a positive impact through knowledge & charity by creating a common ground where any culture in the world can come and celebrate their way of life through the arts and food.

What is Cultural Identity?

From day one, after the Native Indians, anyone who set foot in the United States is also of a unique culture. Throughout the centuries, all immigrants and their children born here, have been part of this great “Patch Work” we call America.

It is not uncommon for those who are born out of their native land to feel lost in a sea of different cultures and backgrounds. A Cultural Identity is important.

Arts integration is a powerful force that will allow people to experience things directly and develop a strong self identity connecting them to their cultural roots. To understand where you come from and where others come from will help to foster a greater understanding and respect for different cultural values and customs.

No one speaks the language of Cultures better than World Heritage Cultural Center, and nothing can capture the imagination more than telling great stories through the Arts.

The World Heritage Cultural Center is helping bridge the gaps between cultures in our increasingly multicultural country and globalizing world. This is a profoundly important task, and will only become more so in the years to come.

Not only is Danbury’s population diverse, but it is also very young. The programs that WHCC will offer will provide fun and educational outlets for this young generation, while simultaneously allowing both children and parents to learn about the many cultures of their neighbors, and the unique, diverse culture that is Danbury itself.
