WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE DO
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.
Reception Friday, October 9th 5:30 to 7:30pm
October 7 - 31
In Indian culture any kind of art work is considered both a gift from, and an offering to the divine maker. As such these expressions of devotion are more subject to varied interpretations than to an elaboration of a single-minded design.
Having said that, my work has been described as a blend of South Asian ethnic art and modern art. I now live in Memphis, Tennessee, but the sights and sounds of India continue to haunt me. I am ever conscious of the paradox that is Asia; its poverty and opulence, its irresistible urge for modernization, and its equally determined resolve to retain tradition. My work now reflects this unceasing encounter with the unknown, the constant need to adjust and re-adjust, and coax fluidity into an inner core which must withstand as well as absorb.

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.
