Global festival at UNM Nov. 19

UNM’s Office of International Programs and Studies hosts, “One Planet, Many Faces,” an international festival, on Wednesday, Nov. 19, 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m., in the auxiliary gym, at UNM’s Johnson Center.

The festival, now in its fifth year, includes live music and dance performances from around the world, including Russian and Indian classical dance, and flamenco and African dance. The colorful sights and sounds of a global community will make this year’s event particularly memorable, said Ken Carpenter, associate director, Office of International Programs and Studies.

Food from many cultures, prepared by UNM’s international students and organizations, and the local international community will be for sale. Last year’s event featured food from more than 20 countries with 1,500 students, faculty, staff and community members participating.

“This year looks to be just as promising,” Carpenter said. Food prices range from just 50 cents to four dollars, making it inexpensive to sample a variety of foods.

Among the UNM departments and organizations sponsoring the festival are the Office of International Programs and Studies, Latin American and Iberian Institute, El Centro de la Raza, Student Fee Review Board and Student Special Events.
