Bembé in Schools
Bembé partners with Milwaukee schools to cultivate in-house cultural performing arts programs that suit the needs and culture of their unique school communities. School-based performing arts programs are year-round, after-school programs that use a Positive Youth Development model to engage youth and their families in ethnomusicology, technique and performance skills, and cultural honorance and empathy, with unique opportunities for intergenerational programing and study abroad. Led by master instructors in the fields of Afro-Latino Diaspora studies, Bembé youth also serve as cultural ambassadors throughout the City of Milwaukee.
