NCTC GOES TO AUSTRAILIA
We are pleased to announce that the Australian Alumni Fulbright Scholars are replicating our program “Frayed Lives: The Global Refugee Crisis.” They found our salon format and materials so compelling, that they are organizing similar programs in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane this upcoming November. Dr. Mara Adelman, an NCTC Board Member and US Fulbright Scholar (Ethiopia, China) will assist in curating the programs. We will keep you posted on the events.
NCTC PARTNERS WITH COPIA
Copia is very excited to partner with NCTC for upcoming events. We will co-sponsor relevant programs, which will enable NCTC to expand our program venues. Copia has offered discounted rates for NCTC members for their new culinary conversations and we are tentatively working on a “Refugee Dinner & Narratives” event.
MARKETING NCTC PROGRAMS
Due to the incredible success of “Frayed Lives: The Global Refugee Crisis.” NCTC is currently marketing this program to synagogues and churches throughout the United States. We will be providing a full package of the slides, video, event templates, handouts, and organizing materials. We will offer this program for a donation to Hands on Global – thus expanding NCTC’s commitment to refugees in “making the invisible visible.”
