Passport to the World
Sunday, June 1, 2013, 2-4 p.m.
Passport to the World, a series highlighting different countries from around the world, takes place bi-monthly at the Williamson County Library. The series is free and open to the public.
Passport to the World provides an authentic and personal look into the splendor of the continents around the globe. This bi-monthly series takes a walk through the doorways of the world into the seven continents to experience art, music, food, lifestyle, landscape, and heritage of our international neighbors presented through performance, presentation and display. Experience the world without leaving home!
“This series is designed to assist our community in becoming globally competent and passionate citizens of the world,” said Dr. Mark Hilliard, President of O’More College of Design. “With each year that passes, more and more of our local economy will include global ties. An understanding of this global economy as well as global politics, global education, global religion, global conflict, and global art and design are imperative to the total preparation process of making American students and businesses marketable throughout the world.”
Passport to the World is presented by Sister Cities of Franklin and Williamson County and co-sponsored by the Williamson County Public Library and the Townsend Institute for Global Competency at O’More College of Design.
