Mission Statement


The Maxine Greene Center for Aesthetic Education and Social Imagination provides opportunities for dialogue, reflection and interaction in diverse communities, among participants focused on works of art as possibilities toward human growth.  The Center has establised an archive of Maxine Greene’s writing, documented lectures, and public response in order to disseminate the aesthetic education practices, research, and experience inspired by Dr. Maxine Greene. It seeks to form and strengthen alliances among arts organizations, schools, universities, and other cultural organizations, as well as individual educators, teaching artists and experts from other fields who are engaged in aesthetic education, inquiry, and developing social imagination.
