Central Kentucky has become home to people from TO‘PP Q S RBSW and BM
many parts of our nation and world. Yet there are signifi—
cant barriers in our community. Differences in race, reli- ,

divide us. Here is an opportunity to lower the barriers. 9 e4 1
The One World Festival has been planned as a way Q9 , ¢ ,
to learn about the variety of cultures now represented in A i
the Bluegrass, to enjoy some of what these cultures , ., ' ‘
have to offer, and to celebrate our growing diversity. We f 1
need to communicate across differences in order to ‘ .- . _‘ V. ‘ N I
make Lexington a more harmonious community for -— a [i n } st i
everyone. I /, .. .1 - [t ,
The first event for adults is a community dance, the “H” ‘ ‘ ' . “
One World DanCeiebv-ofion, featuring the music and , - ' .
dance styles of several different cultures. When people . . g
dance to the music of other cultures they communicate ' -' 3 ‘
and share in those cultures in ways that are impossible to -’ .1 ' -_‘
describe in words. Dancing together is simply a great , ' i. "
way for people to get to know each other better. ;; ' ' ' , , .
Two dances will be held on Friday November 20. I i Q~ .
One, for youth will be held at Arts Place. This will be in ‘ . v b .
conjuction with the People to People program sponsored i1 f) % .
by NCCJ. The other dance is for adults and will be held 2 3‘
in the newly renovated Ballroom in the Government ‘
Center (200 E. Main St) from 8pm until midnight. A dona— ,, /fii§e§es
