Understanding the culture of a nation,
people, or group—the arts, beliefs, customs, practices, values, and social
behaviors—lies at the heart of GYANDA. By
attending cultural events, a GYANDA student experiences firsthand the
diverse offerings of culture and artistic expression found in a community.
cannot happen just at school—it must go beyond the walls of the classroom.
Watching a play performed live is quite a different experience than reading a
play from a book. Through attendance at events, GYANDA students broaden their
horizons and gain unique insights into their own communities as well as a
broader global perspective of our world’s diverse cultures.
