Dear World Artists Experiences Audiences, Partners, Friends, Supporters and Teams, As 2019 arrives, we wish you a beautiful New Year and peace for our world.  World Artists Experiences' (WAE) vision hopes to bring small steps toward peace in our fragile world. Join us as we seek to develop a deeper understanding of people and cultures across the continents through the human spirit of the arts and culture.

For fifteen enriching years, WAE has brought great memories and experiences from over one hundred twenty countries.  Many of you were behind the scenes welcoming, developing new and lasting friendships, caring for artists from around the world as if they were family, opening your homes and hearts, providing financial gifts and developing mutual understanding.  All volunteers are assisting WAE toward building trust, respect, and peace in our world.

We are grateful to YOU who volunteer for WAE....volunteer teams and Community Ambassadors.  Also, our partners...institutions, colleges and schools, and others who recognize the great importance of citizen and cultural diplomacy.  

MANY thanks to YOU, the fantastic audiences and the media who welcome, share, and engage in many world experiences. We are grateful to YOU, the financial supporters who give so generously. Generous financial gifts enable the work of the organization. 

We are grateful to the Embassies, Ministries of Culture and Education, international organizations and institutions who partner with WAE to enhance the vision--- for their ideas, suggestions and support. Groups of artists, directors, and cultural experts widely recognized in their country and the world who come to the WAE communities bring fantastic world opportunities in our communities, colleges, and schools.

On the stage, Joy is brought to all of us.   Behind the stage, working together is essential! Join us to make a difference.  Consider our teams!!!  IT experts, web page creators, communications, as feature artists, host families, providing meals and receptions, financial contributions, help us to find new financial partners,  international education teams, the development teams, cultural immersion teams, and many others.   We welcome you and your ideas!

Hoping to see you at the 2019 WORLD ARTISTS EXPERIENCES,
