WorldFest Days Thank You and Acknowledgments

WorldFest  Days is brought to you by a team of people dedicated to cultural diplomacy and the power of intercultural connection, outreach, and engagement. We thank everyone involved in making WorldFest Days a reality: UM Global Engagement staff and interns; volunteers, presenters and panelists, performers, storytellers, vlog chefs, consultants, videographers, photographers, technical consultants, UM colleagues and departments across campus, international students, domestic students, and international scholars, and partners near and far.  We appreciate everyone’s contributions and dedicated effort to bring this first-ever virtual WorldFest to fruition.  We thank the University of Montana for its support of this festival.  Please check back here soon for a more extensive acknowledgment of WorldFest organizers and partners.

Thank you to our patrons in Missoula and beyond. We hope you enjoy the many offerings on tap at this multifaceted festival. Since many aspects of this festival are virtual, we will continue to keep the festival content available for some time after the festival dates, so please check back and stream more content in the days and weeks to come. Thank you for joining WorldFest Days!
