12th A World United through Art Children's Art Exhibit

September 2008 - hosted by Yuvabadana Foundation

Some GLOBE students participated at the 12th "A World United through Art Children’s Art Exhibit" hosted by Yuvabadhana Foundation of Thailand last year in September. The theme of this exhibition was COLORS FROM MANY LANDS and 110 schools in 33 countries contributed.

It was important for us in participating at this exhibition because the original key elements to "A World united through Art" are children, art, and global friendship. Also it is really true that Art is without borders. A Certificate of Merit was awarded to Rakotomalala Floret Cordier, one of our GLOBE students, for his participation in the 12th A World United through Art Children’s Art Exhibit.
