FEWC International Education Week (2017)

 Friends of the East-West Center, in cooperation with the Hawai`i Dept. of Education, brought more than a hundred students from three local public elementary schools to EWC to give them an opportunity to learn about the Center and countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Activity stations included cross-cultural dialogue with EWC students, a tour of the Center’s campus, cooperative learning through an EWC Gallery exhibition on Indian textiles, demonstrations of traditional Indian dance, and hands-on learning about Asia Pacific countries through cultural items from around the region. The students were welcomed to the event by special guest Hawai`i First Lady Dawn Ige.
