Video Pals (V-Pals)

challenging participants to explore music and art as tools to help break down cultural identity barriers

In 2017, The Canales Project launched a new, free, and simple international education program titled “Video Pals (V-Pals).” TCP is committed to using the power of the arts to touch hearts, examine belief systems and find those common bonds that link all of us and help us overcome our differences. Our “V-Pals Program” not only exposes participants to new professional artists and cultural identities, but it also encourages and inspires them to artistically and creatively cross identity and cultural barriers with the intention to connect to and learn about new communities and ways of life.

Featuring and TCP Founder and CEO Carla Canales as well as various artists throughout the school year, “V-Pals” incorporates the cultural backgrounds and travel experiences from each of artists to give participants a broader understanding of the different cultures we encounter in our world. Working with a number of schools and organizations, “V-Pals” not only educates and engages a wide range of participants about different parts and cultures in the world, but it also inspires them to continue to be inquisitive about other cultures, ethnicities and lifestyles while teaching them how to cross barriers related to identity and culture artistically and creatively.

This free, interactive, video-based program challenges participants to explore music and art as tools to help break down cultural identity barriers and make the journey from “the other” to the “all.”
