International Multicultural Festival – May 16, 2015
WHERE: 2100 EAST 3RD STREET, AUSTIN TEXAS 78702 WHEN: MAY 16, 2015 TIME: 11am-6pm COST: Free
The International Multicultural Festival (IMF) is centered on celebrating the uniqueness of the Austin Community by bringing different cultural groups together to learn, explore and celebrate each other and enhance unity among family. This festival is derived from the idea that we are all different and unique, and yet, we are all the same. We may look different, speak different languages, and hold different practices and beliefs. But when we look inside ourselves, we are still the same and there is still so much to learn and benefit from each other’s different culture. Multiculturalism is more than just the acknowledgment of a diverse cultural background. Here in Austin we witness the intertwining and interaction between cultures, local and international, and the positive influences they play on each other.
There will be music, dance, different multicultural performances, story telling, drinks, workshops, seminars, round table discussions etc

Polish historical archives need your help
The wonderful Josef Pilsudski Institute of America needs our help with moving expenses. Any amount is gratefully appreciated. They lost their lease on the current location and all the Polish letters, paintings, books, and articles they collected, to show our historical heritage, need to be moved in March to a new location.
The entire collection in the Institute’s archives can be accessed by anyone who wants to learn more about Poland and our history. This campaign, asking for financial assistance, should be dear to all of us to help preserve our history.
Please, make a donation via, CrowdRise to keep the Institute going.
