Sister Cities International Young Artists and Authors Showcase

Feb 10, 2020
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Harrison School for the Arts is proud to be hosting Lakeland Sister Cities International’s “Young Artists and Authors Showcase” on February 10, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. There will be a reception from 6 to 7 p.m. in the main rotunda in front of the art gallery. An awards presentation will also take place and entries will be displayed in the art gallery.

Artists and authors, ages 13-18 from Lakeland-area schools have been invited to submit work. This year’s theme, “One World: Out of Many, We are One” asks students to explore the theme, highlighting the importance of citizen diplomacy and the innovative ways citizen diplomats achieve peace through people-to-people interaction.
Lakeland Sister Cities International (LSCI), a chapter of Sister Cities International, was formed in 1990. The mission of LSCI is to develop relationships with people and cities of similar interests to Lakeland from around the world. This unique program encourages cultural and educational exchanges, business opportunities and increased tourism by encouraging direct personal and professional relationships at the grass roots level.

Harrison School for the Arts has been hosting this show for the past several years in partnership with Lakeland Sister Cities International. The first place winners in the local Young Artists and Young Authors competitions are entered in the national “Sister Cities” art and authors competitions.
