FOSTERING UNITY IN DIVERSITY
"Shakti" is the receptive, feminine force of nature that holds space for diverse perspectives and ways of being. Shakti Foundation for Arts and Culture is a 501(c)(3) non-profit cultural arts advocacy organization based in Washington, DC. The mission of the organization is to
1. Use the arts as a vehicle for greater harmony and understanding between cultures, through innovatively pairing programmed cultural arts events with global social justice causes.
2. Develop new platforms and opportunities for cultural arts and artists, with a focus on arts from the Islamic world, to create greater understanding and reduce bias between the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds.
3. Facilitate non-violent communication between cultural groups and organizations. The organization currently serves the Washington, DC metropolitan region and New York City through local and regional event programming to develop linkages between the cultural arts and social justice causes.
Through partnering with national and international non-profits, including Amnesty International and UNICEF, the organization coordinates live and online events to build diversity and inclusion in communities.
