On Saturday, April 28th at St John’s College we’ll celebrate the global identity we all now carry – through word, art, performance, food and games…
Come and celebrate your global identity.
Location: St. John’s College, Great Hall, 1160 Camino De Cruz Blanca, Santa Fe
The Summit will divide into three parts:
- 4:30pm. In the Great Hall at St John’s, we’ll have a series of interactive games, a photography booth, live painting, and a drumming workshop. And be prepared for a surprise or two… You’ll be issued a passport at the door to collect as many stamps as you can…
- 5:15pm – 6:30pm. We’ll enjoy a special international menu prepared by Chef Alexa – either inside or outside Peterson Hall. Free for students and teachers!
- 6:45pm – 9:00pm. We’ll gather again in the Great Hall for a Variety Show celebrating global identity. The night’s keynote will be Issa Nyaphaga — artist, activist, body-painter, speaker, and humanist from Cameroon (pictured). He’ll begin with some interpretive painting, followed by some body painting, and then one of his superb inspirational speeches. Following Issa will be African drummers and dancers, slam poets, TED-style speakers, a flamenco troupe, several bands, and then BARACUTANGA!!! Oh yes.
Here are the lineup highlights for the night:
- Issa Nyaphaga: interpretive painting followed by a TED talk
- Akeem Ayannini: African drumming
- Emi Artes Flamenco
- Allegra Love: How I became a Global Citizen
