THE CULTURE WITHIN US - THE INSIDE OUT PROJECT
The Spirit of UN Week Continues!
The Culture Within Us lives on! Jessie Bennett, Kirsten Hennigan and Alexandre Coric donated their time and installed the portraits at the Greenwich Library! You can view the portraits at the Main Branch on the 3rd floor in the children’s room. It is a spectacular sight! Please take the time to visit our portraits in a different setting. You can also visit @gwlibrary on Instagram. If you haven't already, be sure to go to http://www.insideoutproject.net/en/group-actions/us-greenwich to see our project posted on the Inside Out Project website along with other global projects.
As another gift to us and our school, Mr. Coric came to JC and photographed the UN Day Parade. He has since put together a beautiful video that captures the incredible diversity of our community and the pride that we all feel being a part of such an amazing event. After seeing the video, Mr. Kul Chandra Gautam, a distinguished diplomat, development professional, and a former senior official of the United Nations commented, "Events and gestures involving the young generation like the UN Day Parade at Julian Curtiss School give me hope that the spirit of human solidarity and faith in multilateralism will remain eternal. Lovely slide show, and admirable commitment of the school community. Keep it up!"
Thank you again to Mr. Coric for his talents and commitment to spreading a message of equality, hope and pride. Please enjoy the video below!
