"Tragedy in Charleston" Aug. 7 - 31

The exhibit “Tragedy in Charleston” was developed as a way to address several topics that have come to light over the last 15 months. Acts of violence resulting in protest, enlightenment and truths have come to the forefront in our communities. Caritas wants to show the creativity and voice of the artist as a way to express support for the families of Charleston, take a stance against racism, examine our civil rights and explore why "Black Lives Matters".

Our Mission:

 

To break down walls of hostility between the cultures, to build bridges of love and trust between the rich and those made poor & to provide a positive alternative to the street corners for the neighborhood children.

Live,  Love,  Share & Learn:

 

Caritas Village uses art, music, hospitality, theatre, classes, and connections to

creatively join people together in common goals from many different ethnic, racial,

and socioeconomic backgrounds.

After school Caritas Village provides a safe haven for children of the neighborhood.  Although there is no organized program, children are welcome. They sit, talk and play games.  Much like the adults who come to gather at Caritas Village, the children also come to find a sense of belonging and connection.

 

The Village's lower level is a coffee shop that also works as a music/library/game-playing living room and den.  Clean, brightly colored, and spacious, the coffee-shop serves an impressive variety of delicious lunches Mon. thru Sat.

 

Caritas also is home to the Hope Gallery and the Caritas  Arts Residency Program that helps promote art education in the Binghamton community. We offer free art workshops for both kids and adults on a variety of arts and crafts projects. We also provide exhibition space for beginning and upcoming artist each month with several group shows a year.

 

We're also home to Centro Cultural a non-profit organization that strives to meet the needs of the multi-cultural community by celebrating and promoting awareness of cultural richness and diversity interpreted through the literary, performing, and visual arts.
