exchanging gifts
at the International Cultural Industries Forum

[Megan Williams is Secretary of the International Network for Cultural Diversity and freelance arts consultant to the Elizabeth Bishop Centenary Festival Committee. She presented an Elizabeth Bishop Centenary Pencil to her Ghanaian colleague Korkor Amartefio, International Network for Cultural Diversity Steering Committee member and Associate Director of the Institute for Music Development, who in turn presented Megan with a lovely CD of Ghanaian music. We are very grateful to Megan for her efforts to spread the news about the EB100 Festival during her trip to China.]

[The coveted Elizabeth Bishop Centenary Pencil is available upon application to the EB100 Festival Committee, which applications will be viewed with especial favour should they be accompanied by submissions to our "First Encounters" Department ~~ JB].
