Worldbeat Center is at the heart of many movements and serves to cultivate peace for all living beings. I would compare this place to the museums of Balboa Park, yet it is so very much more.

I love so many things about this place: the lively dance parties, the sustainable garden, the children's program, international school and the charismatic leader's passion for speaking to the rich indigenous history uniting the roots of all people. There is Kombucha on tap which is fresh and delicious. There is a cafe and kitchen open on select days. Also, you can rent the space for events! All generations and cultures are at home here. This is a place for the people.

So I consider this a living museum and a place where culture and science collide in the dance of life. From the Earth to the Stars, Worldbeat Center brings wisdom into cultural consideration. As a center of expanding concern the subjects "curated" in this cultural nexus run the gamut from sustainable gardening to astronomy as the history of wisdom is given voice. Peace is a practice and in San Diego, Worldbeat Center keeps the heart beat of unity alive and well situated in this living museum of soul, spirit and sustainable prosperity.

Bad, my son who is autistic was asked what was he doing, he was leaning next to the outside wall painting and I was told to keep him under control, great way to promote peace and unity within diversity

World Beat cultural center is a big round covered structure in Balboa Park that presents different events and activities. I started attending their free yoga class held every Wednesday from 5_6 pm , very nice and laid back for all different levels with a great instructor. If you like yoga this class would be ideal . It is free, certified instructor and gentle. World beat center is located around 2100 park blvd by children's playground.

A cultural center in the midst of an urban setting. Home to many children's services, artists, culture classes and the like. The backdrop and home of the San Diego Heirloom seedswap as well as the setting for numerous other seed sovereign projects. This place has a stellar cafe, and is complete with a children's ethnobotany peace garden where produce is grown year round for the cafe and as well as for the community to learn in.

Iā€™m not typically one for vegan food but omg it was great. When we arrived there was a class for traditional African drumming and music. I was sitting and watching with my toddler and the instructor told me to join in. I had a lot of fun smacking the drum. We also ordered a young coconut. Ended up ordering another it was so freakin good. I definitely want to go again. Staff was super friendly.

Beautiful place! Has a little food kiosk(mostly organic products and delicious, by the way), historical yet artisticdisplays of African culture and welcoming staff. It immerses you in our heritage in the most pleasing way. They have dance lessons, summer camps, and a whole bunch off activities for adults and children alike. Exactly what you'd expect from a cultural center.
