Catch the Fire - Berlin 2011

The World Culture Festival at Berlin will witness the amalgamation of people from 151 countries into one festive spirit. When approximately 70,000 people will come together, so will their values and beliefs.

Here is a chance for us to represent the United States in a global arena. Let's march, hand in hand, with 150 other countries and show what America truly stands for – a melting pot of diverse cultures!

Guruji often says that the underlying cause of all the strife in the world is lack of understanding of other cultures. This is an opportunity to educate others… and ourselves!

Break the barriers, March to Berlin! Do you wish to be a part of the performances?
