Mission Statement

GALACTIC harnesses new media to inspire global engagement rooted in local knowledge. In virtual and face-to-face classroom settings, GALACTIC foregrounds cultural practitioners: artists, healers, cooks, and storytellers as teachers and as instrumental to an understanding of cultural diversity, conflict, and even resolution. Offering professional development workshops, we design local-centric curricula at the intersection of arts, indigenous leadership, cultural heritage policy, decolonization, compassionate listening and conflict management. Bridging local cultures is out of this world! GALACTIC is a collaboration among Navajo Technical University School of Dine' and Law Studies, Indiana University Center for The Study of the Middle East and Center for the Study of Global Change, The Ohio State University's Living Jerusalem: Ethnography and Blog-Bridging in Disputed Territory and Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.
