Paris Global Arts & Culture Program 2017 Completed


Each year, J Rêve International holds a lineup of global professional development programs that inspire and equip educators and creatives to incorporate arts and culture into their lives and work. Through these creativity programs, participants cultivate valuable skills and insights that encourage global citizenry and enhance international relations, all essential in 21st century classrooms and professions. J Rêve International’s annual Paris Art & Culture Exchange Program is designed with these outcomes in mind. Global education and cultural exchange is vital to achieving international peace. The theme for the 2017 program was “Art & Cultural Diplomacy.” Participants from New York City and Rochester, NY experienced a variety of activities while in Paris including insightful discussions with creatives and thought leaders on culture and arts, visits to cultural institutions, culinary and dance courses, and of course, visits to some of the beautiful monuments that Paris has to offer.
