Atum Azzahir, the Cultural Wellness Center’s Executive Director explains her work in the following way: “If I were to think about the work that I’m responsible for and do, it is so that people can speak for themselves. So that people are able to create the space where they have enough wisdom and knowledge and enough experience with solving their problems and coming up with solutions.”  The Cultural Wellness Center provides the space and services to learn about one’s own culture, and to encourage visitors to think about culture as a resource to build capability and be involved.
