|CrossPathCulture (CPC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating international dialogue on art and culture. Through the creation of events, production and exhibition centers, and educational workshops, CPC exposes artists as well as the public to art created throughout the world. CPC aims to encourage and enable individual and collaborative cultural efforts on a global scale.
Founded in 1998, and officially incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2000, CPC is a dynamic network of emerging and established artists, educators, and others who share a common belief that art is an essential tool for social change. CPC is headquartered in New York City.

CPC has supported projects that are accessible to a diverse global public and foster unique collaborations among artists and art organizations.

CPC has always focused on the power of art to educate, uplift and inspire. Art Assist, Digital Education workshops and non-traditional partnerships with public schools were organized in South Africa and the USA in connection with periods of fine arts, film and music production. Art-Assist works with street kids, art students and adults as assistants to professional artists, musicians and filmmakers and gives them the opportunity to work hands on within the production of art projects. The Digital Education workshops we have organized have focused on basic web use, digital image manipulation, advanced web and graphic design, digital film and music editing. Non-traditional partnerships with Public schools have included student participation, art creation and dialogue with international artist in association with exhibitions.
