Genesis at the Crossroads, a Chicago-based non-profit organization, created in 1999, works at the nexus of human rights, social justice, the arts and education, creating and implementing performance, arts-integrated education and arts-based humanitarian initiatives locally, nationally and globally.

Saffron Caravan, The Genesis World Music Ensemble unites stellar musicians from Iran, Afghanistan, Brazil, Cuba, Morocco, Israel, India and the United States to create new art and to perform together under the aegis of Genesis at the Crossroads. They demonstrate that the arts can be used to build sustainable bridges between cultures, made stronger through educational initiatives.
