VSA Tennessee is excited to announce that it is working to unveil its largest project to date. The 40 Days Around the World Digital Arts Festival is the cooperative effort of art, education and cultural exchanges between nearly 60 countries, numerous VSA Affiliates, schools, military groups, healthcare providers, sports teams, and more. All of these are coming together to celebrate the power of the arts to bring people of all abilities together from all over the world. The festival began as a way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the international VSA program, but has grown to be much more. The festival opens June 16, but pre-events and promotions are just around the corner. Watch us here and on Facebook and join our online newsletter. You are NOT going to want to miss this.
