What are UM WorldFest Days and What Makes Them Fun?
Story telling hours for the whole family. Art. Music. Dance. Cooking. Virtual concert. WorldFest Days could be for you, family and friends
WorldFest Days come to the University of Montana Friday - Sunday, April 9-11. This free online event is designed to promote intercultural and global awareness and appreciation, as well as connect Montana residents, the UM community and international partners with one another. UM’s Global Engagement Office and International Student Association will host.
WorldFest Days will feature presentations and discussions; children’s and family programming; art, music and dance; and cooking shows. A mix of live and prerecorded programs will be available for viewing.
With the whole family in mind, there will be international storytelling hours, presented by UM language clubs and UM international students. It's an opportunity to discover a variety of delicious global cuisines presented by local international residents. These instructional videos will showcase dishes from India, Germany, Nepal, Wales and much more. Several will provide an opportunity for viewers to purchase ingredients ahead of time to cook along.
Participants can also join the UM Chamber Choral for a virtual, prerecorded concert titled “Frozen Words,” which will offer music from the Philippines, Macedonia, France, Finland, Poland and the United States.
Want to put your global knowledge to the test? Join UM’s Student Involvement Network for WorldFest Trivia. UM students and their families may participate in-person at the UC Theater, and community members may participate via Zoom, both using Kahoot to compete together.
Again, the event is free, but you need to RSVP on this page of the UM Campus Labs website. Our thanks to UM News Services for sharing the invitation.
