AIS, ISTA and The Center will also be partnering with a local non-profit, youthSpark, as the festival explores modern slavery, the rise of human trafficking in the 21st century, and how we can take action to stop it.

The festival will include over 100 students from 8 international schools and local Atlanta schools, 10 ISTA artists and three guest speakers.

ISTA ( believes that the future of our world depends on confident, internationally minded, collaborative and culturally literate young people who are empowered to engage with and change the world responsibly. We believe that this is achieved through the ISTA Experience.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][vc_text_separator title=”Guest Speakers” title_align=”separator_align_left”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mk_circle_image heading_title=”Jennifer Swain” src=”×300.jpg”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][mk_padding_divider][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1551727047991{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Executive Director of youthSpark, who will give context to modern slavery[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mk_circle_image heading_title=”Mike McCarthy” src=””][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][mk_padding_divider][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1551727068071{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Senior Vice President and General Manager for CNN International, who will talk about #MyFreedomDay and taking a call to action[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mk_circle_image heading_title=”Mary Frances Bowley” src=””][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][mk_padding_divider][mk_padding_divider][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1551727086364{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]President and Founder of Wellspring Living, who will talk about the importance of being an activist[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mk_circle_image heading_title=”Jonothan Neelands” src=””][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][mk_padding_divider][mk_padding_divider][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1551727321604{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Lead educator on Theatre and Social Change, from Bristol University in the UK[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][mk_padding_divider][vc_text_separator title=”Program Partners” title_align=”separator_align_left”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][mk_padding_divider size=”20″][vc_single_image image=”43452″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”43453″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
