Global Citizen Summit 2018

Join students from across northern New Mexico in sharing your global identity. How are you a global citizen? How do you connect with people and cultures around the world? What are your responsibilities to the planet? What social injustices do you address?

On April 28th at St John’s College, we’ll celebrate the global identity we all now carry – through dance, music, fine art, photography, short stories, poems, essays, public speaking, and sculpture… There will be cash prizes, food from around the world, slam poetry, and a headline music act from West Africa.

Come and celebrate your global identity.

The Summit will be divided into three parts:

  1. 3:00 – 5:00pm. In either the Great Hall or the Student Athletic Center at St John’s, all student submissions will be displayed or presented. Students and judges will review submitted pieces (fine art, sculpture, photography) and determine individual winners. During this process, students will offer their public speaking, short stories, and poetry entries. See this link for submission guidelines and deadlines.
  2. 5:00pm – 6:30pm. If the weather is nice, we’ll hit the big field for an international themed BBQ dinner; if it’s raining or snowing, we’ll stay inside and enjoy food from around the world
  3. 6:45pm – 9:00pm. Now the party gets going – with slam poetry, speeches, and music of course – with a West African headliner among several other surprises…

The Summit is supported in part by New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.
