Our vision: a diverse, inclusive and thriving community.
An inclusive society; achievable or a dream too far? An inclusive society is a cultural experience. An immersion to diverse cultures that will enrich our lives. It is achieved when we bridge cultures and inspire action. It is not accidental, it is deliberate, in words or deeds.
An inclusive society is a festival! The FESTIVAL OF NATIONS! A time to wine and dine, a musical spectacle, a story told, a showcase of the thriving entrepreneurial spirit of this diverse community.
Take Action! Create awareness, showcase your culture, participate in an activity, lead a project, and engage in cultural experiences! An inclusive society when we do something about it. The Festival of Nations is the opportunity.
Watch for more details about Festival of Nations 2021 which we will bring to you virtually AND in-person!
About the International Institute of St. Louis
Festival of Nations is again brought to you by the International Institute of St. Louis (IISTL). For more than 100 years, IISTL has been building a more connected and productive society to benefit immigrants, their families, and the wider community. Our vision is for a diverse, inclusive and thriving community.
Today, IISTL provides a whole host of services annually to more than 5,000 immigrants and refugees, including English classes, citizenship preparation, job services, counselling, and small business development. We are also working to help immigrants and the wider community to build connections by promoting cross-cultural understanding. Join us at www.iistl.org to learn more about IISTL. Sign up for our E-News today!
We depend on generous gifts from supporters of the festival to ensure that the work of the International Institute of St. Louis continues, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic when the need is greater and resources are less.
