World Culture Festival is a movement for creating a more harmonious and compassionate world by celebrating humanity’s rich cultural diversity and the underlying spirit that connects us all.

“When celebration comes from a place of enthusiasm and joy, it can uplift and unite all around us, bringing freedom from our traumatic past and sparking hope for the future. This type of celebration is service. It is sacred. Turn your celebration into a sacred offering for society.”
– Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

The opportunity is tremendous. This massive celebration can change hearts and mindsets about “other cultures,” and foster a perception of the reality that we are members of a worldwide family of individuals and cultures. We believe creating harmony in individuals can lay the foundation for harmony in society.

Why Now?

We are facing an unprecedented increase in identity-based conflict and violence, growing religious and ethnic divides along with the rise of radicalization and terrorism.

The World Culture Festival seeks to showcase the opposite – a celebration of humanity’s rich cultural diversity and the spirit of oneness that unifies us all.

The World Culture Festival stands as a beacon for global harmony and a countervailing force against the rise of intolerance and hatred.

The Festival will serve as a dynamic platform that galvanizes a coalition for a more harmonious world. The focus is on the link between the individual and collective – how individual peace can contribute to global peace.
