Greetings Educators, please be advised that we will not host a World Fest for 2019. We are currently in the process of strategic planning and evaluating. We hope to bring you cultural diversity programming in the future.
Created in 1994 by the Little Rock Racial and Cultural Diversity Commission, World Fest is an exciting multicultural festival that offers students a variety of multicultural learning experiences. This is accomplished by providing students with a safe, fun and stimulating environment infused with diversity education. This award-winning festival provides students with rich learning opportunities through their participation in the following World Fest activities:
- World Cultural Fair Contest
Students research, learn and present cultural facts and information about an international country – presentations are judged. Presenting students compete for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place titles.
- Global Village
Various cultural agencies have booths designed for students to learn about their respective countries or other global issues. Global Village also allows for students to interact directly with individuals from other cultures.
- Global Imagination Stage
Students deliver an on-stage, cultural performance allowing them to demonstrate their cultural learning through expressive arts.
World Fest is a culturally rich and educational festival suited for students of ALL grade levels.
