"BUILDING BRIDGES, CONNECTING CULTURES"

The mission of the Center for Arabic Culture (CAC) is to promote Arabic Culture and the Arab-American experience through education and the arts.

Our Goals

Between the Arab-American community and the greater New England community.
Empower Arab-American Youth
In celebrating their culture, and help its integration into the US cultural fabric including theater, music, and community service.
Encourage Arab-American and International Arab Artists
By creating a forum for them on a local and national level.
Promote the Arabic Language
