Peerbagh’s mission is to improve teacher, librarian, and parent skills and bring the lost art of storytelling into the classroom or teaching environment through art, creative writing, theater, cultural inquisitiveness, and oral storytelling.

We conduct South-Asia-inspired storytelling workshops, publish children’s books, story capsules (audio and video) and create toolkits for educators and families. We create an inclusive space for ALL children, so they have a sense of belonging and build creative confidence.

We provide tools for families and educators so they will be empowered to be cultural change agents. Through these tools, we train educators and parents to introduce diverse perspectives and critical thinking in children.

We also support South-Asian and other global artists in these areas to revive or practice their art forms.
