Intercultural Journeys seeks to promote understanding in pursuit of peace among people of diverse faiths and conflicting cultures through dialogue and the presentation of world-class performances in music, dance, the spoken word, and other art forms.

Intercultural Journeys (IJ) has held nearly 150 concerts, partnering with an international roster of artists, including R. Carlos Nakai, Simon Shaheen, Diane Monroe and Jiebing Chen. Through musical and personal dialogues with these artists and others, Intercultural Journeys has been able to spread its message to a diverse audience worldwide.

Intercultural Journeys has also developed relationships with other like-minded organizations including The Philadelphia Orchestra and World Affairs Council of Philadelphia.

The audience for IJ’s powerful and original performances continues to grow. In the past year, nearly 7,500 people attended concerts and dialogues. IJ has enjoyed considerable media attention and has now completed its first strategic plan. Through these efforts, IJ is reaching more people with its message of peace and reconciliation through creative performance and dialogue.
