01 Jul THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS CULTURED
Summer is the perfect time to sink into the enjoyment of being with others and the discovery that goes along with it. This summer, we want you to spend your time GETTING CULTURED and digging into the culture all around you. We live in a world where many cultures are around us—more than ever before—and, more importantly, the people from those cultures. Culture comes from our histories—shared and individual—and our hopes and our dreams. It comes from our traditions and languages, our journeys and investments. It’s important to remember that all cultures and all people are interconnected, and to be curious about the culture that we and everyone else live in. This month, get involved with the culture that is around you. Discover where you come from and the culture that you were brought up in. Do more than just observe the culture of your neighbor, friend, and classmate—ask questions and become a participant so you can really learn. Remember that your perspective isn’t necessarily “the right one” just because you have it; instead, take this opportunity to connect with others and learn what they have to say, too. And while you are at it, go experience art in all its forms, and uncover how closely art is connected to culture. So much to enjoy, so go connect and learn a little. Getting cultured matters.
Thank you, Dante.
