GLOBAL CULTURAL EXPERIENCE
We are announcing a new initiative of the Bali Art Project, GLOBAL CULTURAL EXPERIENCE, to provide financial support and informational and experiential resources for global cultural experiences for student groups. Funding will be available starting in Spring 2020.
CRITERIA FOR GROUPS
International trip with emphasis on cultural experiences for students.
Not affiliated with any prepackaged nationally or internationally organized trips
Target age is current 11th graders, but allows for 9th or 10th as well
WHAT IS OFFERED
The organizers of the Bali Art Project, Gaylon and Zenia, former teachers and long time travelers, who, over the last 20 years, have taken 160 New Mexico students to Bali, will share what they have learned. They will offer, not only financial assistance, but also advice about planning the trip, preparing the students and other adults, the challenges dealing with a foreign culture and language, health issues, fundraising and the 1001 things you hadn’t thought of but need to know.
If you know, or wished you did, what it is like to travel or live abroad and want to share that experience with your students we can help you on your way.
