The Humanae Institute is an organization that uses art and education to confront race and skin color to reject intolerance and discrimination.
A global art education movement our understanding of identity, inclusion, equality and diversity through community led projects.
Intolerance related to race, religion, and color negatively affects self-esteem, personal achievement, and community relationships--particularly among young persons in the areas in which they live and attend school. Within the classroom, intolerance becomes discrimination, removing one's ability to see value in oneself and the others: it muddies the beauty of diversity that marks authentic education. Humanae empowers global educators to stand against discrimination by creating playful spaces for students and the communities in which they reside to discuss such complex, vital issues.
Humanae began as Angelica Dass’ photographic art project before evolving into an educational methode that has reached over 500,000 in diverse school communities. It continues to grow as educators, students, and families around the world struggle to find the best way to talk about - and change - attitudes towards race, skin color, and ethnicity.
