The Maxine Greene Center provides opportunities for dialogue, interaction and reflection in diverse communities among participants focused on works of art as possibilities for human development.

The activities of the Center are continually evolving as we become "what we are not yet...", as Maxine would say. We offer workshops, performances, seminars and participate in relevant conferences to support the work of Dr. Greene.

Our web site is maintained as a virtual community where teachers, artists and others interested in our mission congregate, exchange ideas, receive updates and learn about programs we support. Throughout this site, we encourage your participation in the dialogue. This web site is also the place where scholars will find The Maxine Greene Library, a repository for Dr. Greene's papers, speeches, articles, books and video; as well as Maxine Greene's Calendar, listing Dr. Greene's appearances.

The Center's library includes Greene's writings, documented lectures, letters and public responses and also disseminates the aesthetic education practices, research and experiences inspired by Dr. Greene. It seeks to form and strengthen alliances amongst arts organizations, schools, universities and other cultural organizations, as well as individual educators, teaching artists and experts and scholars from diverse fields who are engaged in aesthetic education, inquiry and the development of social imagination.
