At Panta Rhea, we believe that the arts are at the heart of a healthy democracy, whether in a classroom setting or in society at large. The Social Imagination & Engagement program is guided by a vision of the power of the arts as an essential means by which all people make sense of their lives and for their capacity to help us walk in another persons’ shoes, to build empathy, to open dialogue and—in the words of philosopher educator Maxine Greene—to open possibilities in order “to see the world as if it could be otherwise.”
