What We Do
Our mission is to serve as a clearinghouse and partnership builder for activities that explore, reveal and reclaim the shared cultural inheritance of the southeastern Lowcountry rice legacy. We will use the following broad definitions as mechanisms:
The discovery and development of the principles found within nature interpreted into beautiful forms suitable for human use. The purpose is to expose to the consciousness the deepest interests of humanity.
The study of past events and change in human society particularly relating to political, social, economic, scientific, technological, medical, cultural, intellectual, religious and military developments.
The customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group; also, the characteristic features of everyday existence (such as diversions or a way of life) shared by people in a place or time.
The act of teaching knowledge to others and the act of receiving knowledge from someone else.
The Lowcountry Rice Culture Project was founded in 2010 by acclaimed, international artist, Jonathan Green.

We partner with organizations across the Lowcountry, the Nation and the World to preserve the history, art and culture of the West Africans brutally removed from their home countries and continent to labor without compensation in the building of America. We highlight the value of the contributions of these great people and their ancestors, the Gullah/Geechee people.
Some of the organizations with whom we have partnered and continue to partner include the following:
