"Know Your World" is an event, put on by the International Fellows each year, in which each nation displays the life-style and culture of their given heritage. Each display varies in content, but their national flag is displayed, as well as cultural artifacts, maps, works of art, historic items, dress, and photos. Some displays incorporate religious artifacts and practices; others highlight the cultural and/or political history of a given nation and people. Additionally, small portions to sample their indigenous food or drinks have been provided.
The event is open to the entire Carlisle Barracks community, sponsors and guests and typically brings about 800 of people out to engage and interact in cultural diversity and awareness.
The value of this event is the opportunity for International Fellows to showcase their culture and national heritage for the Carlisle Barracks personnel and distinguished guests; creating a mutual appreciation of cultures, practices and ways of life.
