Genesis at the Crossroads builds peaceful communities at the intersection of social justice, education and the arts to foster healing
A world where cross-cultural artistic expression and collaboration serve as a catalyst for interethnic dialogue and innovation, global understanding, healing and world peace. Education and humanitarian-centric business initiatives sustain and further those bridges while nurturing global leadership. Together, we foster a just world for all, honoring our collective humanity.
We are a Chicago-based 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
We believe that everyone has a voice in world peace, and that in order for true peace to be achieved, every voice needs a safe place for expression and communal comprehension.
We believe that the arts transcend cultural differences and barriers to understanding.
We believe that the arts offer immediate and enduring access to our shared humanity, providing opportunities to heal deep divides.
We believe that effective arts-integrated education can equip young people with communication, critical thinking, and conflict resolution skills.
We believe that creative self-expression is vital to the intellectual and emotional growth of all people.
We believe in both the creation of opportunities and infrastructures for the development of new work, and the presentation and preservation of existing artistic product.
We believe that active participation in philanthropy is not only essential to being a well-rounded citizen locally, but also critical to positive forward momentum in the peace process globally.
We believe in the cultivation of equitable social impact business development to ensure sustainable local and global community transformation. (With the community, by the community for the community.)
