Tonight, we are inviting you to a free mixer at the House of Sweden of Sweden to celebrate their program - Going Glocal. This is a rare inside look into the Embassy of Sweden/House of Sweden and their art display.
As part of the Embassy of Sweden's program Going Glocal, you are invited to a very mixer and art exhibit. Enjoy a rare inside look into the Embassy of Sweden/House of Sweden and their Going Glocal display.
THIS IS A FREE EVENT. HOWEVER, PLEASE RSVP IF YOU DEFINITELY INTEND ON COMING.
Following the event, we will head to Sequoias for a post reception.
ABOUT GOING GLOCAL:
Going Glocal expands upon key topics that were in focus during President Barack Obama’s visit to Sweden last year: free trade, global development, climate and sustainability. The program continues the dialogue on these policy issues with U.S. decision makers, the business community and the general public.
Going Glocal examines how increasing free transatlantic trade creates new business opportunities and local jobs. In the area of climate and sustainability, tonight’s display will showcase Swedish trends and developments in areas ranging from global climate issues, to Swedish excellence in innovative sectors such as green tech, renewable energy and creative industries. It will also take on a few of today’s big issues in global development by addressing areas such as the role of women’s entrepreneurship, the private sector, science and technology in fighting poverty.
ABOUT THE DISPLAY:
The glass installation by world famous Swedish glass artist Ingalena Klenell explores fragility and vulnerability, both in the material of glass and in life itself. Homeland asks visitors to ponder the relationship between landscape and memory and how those two perceptions change when we leave our home for an extended period of time -or even forever.
Note: This is a free art tour and gathering tonight. We will not be serving food or drink while at the House of Sweden. However, as mentioned, we will be heading to Tony and Joe's afterwards for a post mixer.
***PLEASE RSVP YOUR ATTENDANCE: While the event is free, we need to track numbers to prevent overcrowding. Remember, food and drink will likely not be served at this event (which is why we will have the post meetup)
