Parfait Bassale, an artist, activist and master’s degree candidate in International Conflict Resolution, will perform during International Education Week at Clark College in Vancouver. A native of Benin, West Africa who was raised in Senegal, he paints a message of truth, inspiration and hope through his music.
“Voices of the World,” a series of events to honor International Education Week, will take place Monday, Nov. 15 through Friday, Nov. 19 at Clark College in Vancouver, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way. All events are free and open to the public.
The ability to identify, analyze and demonstrate how culture shapes world perceptions, values and behaviors is one of Clark College’s educational priorities.
This year, 71 international students are attending Clark. They represent countries including Canada, France, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Portugal, Romania and Vietnam. More than 800 Clark students are currently studying English as a Second Language. Nearly 150 immigrant students learned English as a Second Language through corporate and continuing education classes because of Clark College.
The upcoming events are being coordinated by the Clark College Office of Student Life and Multicultural Student Affairs, Clark’s Service Learning Program, and the Clark College Office of International Programs.
