ELL & Cultural Diversity Peer Group

Where: The Magician
118 Rivington Street
New York, NY

When:6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A big challenge for working with multicultural groups is that things like folklore, mythology, symbolism, and cultural literacy standards differ widely around the world. An artwork based on literary themes might be easily understood for one group and then completely new for the next! On this Midsummer Night's Eve, let's share our experiences working with different reference touchpoints. Or, if we'd all rather, share our favorite "classic" works that are not even remotely serious and our favorite Shakespearian double entendres!


To RSVP, please contact ELL & Cultural Diversity Peer Group Coordinators Jenny ( or Stephanie (


Please note that The Magician is cash-only.
