The Roam From Home are FREE live interactive programs for adults that are held in collaboration with CILC and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum).


The Roam from Home programs have been generously underwritten by the University of Pennsylvania

Open to all, the Penn Museum is home to remarkable objects and powerful stories that emerge from its excavations and research across the world. Connect with the cultures of Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Mediterranean, from the very first cities of the Middle East to the pharaohs of ancient Egypt; from early Mexico to the lives of Native American communities today. Experience the richness of the ancient past, gain an understanding of our shared humanity, and find your own place in the arc of human history.

Sattriya: A Dance Tradition by Penn Museum

Global Voyagers: Explore the World!

In this workshop, a performer of the Sattriya Dance Company, takes you on a journey through a 600-year-old dance tradition. This dance was only preserved, nourished, and practiced by monks on a little island in Northeast India until recently. Students are exposed to stories from Hindu mythology through the dance and also learn about the monks and their lives. Along the way, participants are led in movement exercises and learn some vocabulary of this ancient Indian tradition. There are no recommended materials for this program.
