The Center has established an archive of 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.
