Horizon Theatre Company to Host THIRD COUNTRY Educational Event, 10/15
Horizon Theatre Company is currently running the show Third Country. On Oct 15, they want to take a step beyond the world of the play. Join the company for an evening which brings together people currently living, working, and making change happen in the town that inspired Third Country: Clarkston. In this 1.1 square mile town 10 miles from downtown Atlanta, 60 languages are spoken and one-third of residents are foreign born, including many refugees from around the globe. Hear more about this town's journey in becoming a welcoming place for a diverse community.
The evening includes presentations by the panelists followed by a Q & A.
