Your event will be advertised on a centralized calendar of events for the week, but what you do is up to you. The Global Initiatives Week calendar of events will be made available mid-October on this page.

  • Specials or discounts on cultural items or clothing

  • Host a breakfast or coffee social with a cultural/global group in our community
  • Host a cultural dance performance, or hold a cooking demonstration of ethnic foods
