Festival of Nations

Lecture Series

May 21, 2016


Assembly Hall

Join International House residents, alumni and various Chicago-based community organizations for an afternoon of cultural celebration featuring food, music, dance and exhibits from all over the world. There will be crafts, activities, and much more!

This year's festival will feature six-time winner of The Chicago Music Awards, Funkadesi! Funkadesi proudly hails from Chicago, representing the diverse multiethnic communities within the city. What distinguishes Funkadesi as a group is each band member’s unique and uncompromised cultural/musical contribution merging to create one unifying sound and vision. The event will also feature a guest appearance by Tsukasa Taiko, a leading community program for Japanese drumming and performing arts. 

Free and open to the public. Food tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

Sponsored by the International House Global Voices Performing Arts Series.
