Arts Missoula Office News
Part II: Sister City Partnership Revitalized
As mentioned in the Arts Missoula Newsletter last week, a six-person delegation from Missoula's sister city Palmerston North in New Zealand visited Missoula from Monday, October 8th through Tuesday, October 16th. Global and Cultural Affairs in Arts Missoula oversees the sister city program for the city of Missoula and developed a diverse program for the international visitors. After visits on October 9th, with Mayor John Engen, the Executive Director of the Downtown Missoula Partnership, the UM president and various campus administrators, the delegation had the opportunity the following day, to tour the Missoula College (photo to the left), visit with the Clark Fork Coalition, before touring the Missoula Children's Theater and the Missoula Art Museum, ending the second day with a visit of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. 

October 11th was spent in Helena, with a visit to the Governor's Office, a tour of the Capitol Building and meetings with representatives from the MT Department of Commerce, Export Montana, (photo on the right) as well as a meeting with members of the Offices of International and Domestic Tourism.  A walk through Last Chance Gulch and a visit of the Montana's Museum, of the Montana Historical Society completed the day trip to Helena.  October 12th brought the delegation to the Salish Kootanai College, to meet their president, administrators and faculty, before visiting the UM Biological Station at Flathead Lake.  An evening gathering connected the delegation to leaders in the community and allowed for the exploration of shared economic interests. Tom Bensen, Executive Director of Arts Missoula: "The delegation visit was a great example of sister-city cultural exchange - involving meetings with tribal members, city and state officials, University of Montana administrators and Missoula's arts and cultural organizations.  But just as important, it also highlighted the potential for economic development and collaboration, which is essential as Missoula becomes more of an international city in the years ahead".

Annual State Educators Conference in Billings Featured Arts Missoula Team Member
Dr. Udo Fluck, Director of Global and Cultural Affairs, provided a teacher training at the 2018 MEA-MFT Educators Conference in Billings on October 19th. Among its diverse services, Global and Cultural Affairs has a K-12 outreach program, which infuses existing curricula in Missoula's elementary, middle and high school with cultural and global perspectives. His presentation titled "Managing Cultural Similarities and Differences in K-12 Classrooms", filled a classroom at the Billings Skyview High School to the last seat. Fluck is working with Lewis and Clark Elementary School, Meadow Hill Middle School and Hellgate High School this fall, providing seminars and he welcomes the interest in the topic outside Missoula County Public Schools. "Creating an inclusive classroom environment, where students can learn about cultures helps prepare young learners for future success in diverse environments. Intercultural and global competence begins in K-12 education", according to Fluck.  Over 2,000 educators from across Montana registered for the conference which featured over 500 training sessions and keynotes from 18 curriculum groups with expertise in education.
