Pakistani Group Visits BHW
The Big Heavy World / Vermont Music Library office was visited this week by a delegation of Pakistani Fulbright Scholars participating in the University of Vermont's International Student Institute (ISI). Eight guests got the tour from Ryan, hearing about the projects we do as part of the ISI curriculum of discovering what's unique about America's - and Vermont's - politics, economy, society and culture. The work at Big Heavy World and our Vermont Music Library is accomplished by volunteers and at the same time gives younger adults the chance to pick up professional music industry and media skills. It was nice to share our kind of civic engagement with new friends from so far away. Special thanks to the Center for Communities and Neighborhoods for doing so much of the work of organizing the visit!
