NEW! African and Latino Events Calendars from DFW International
DFW International Community Alliance, creator of North Texas' online international events calendar at www.dfwinternational.org announces two new innovative events listings to serve the North Texas region. At www.dfwinternational.org/AfricanCalendar, the first and only African Events Calendar connects the 150,000 African immigrants from 22 nations who live in the DFW metroplex. The Latino Events Calendar at www.dfwinternational.org/LatinoCalendar includes cultural and educational events for Latin American residents who form more than 40% of the population in seven North Texas municipalities.
The organization's 2010 report used Census figures to indicate the growth of internationals across the region, and noted that 44% of DFW residents are New Americans, that 239 languages are used here, and that in 32% of our homes English is not the language spoken. The new events calendars serve the newcomers while also showcasing the DFW metroplex as an international center where the weekly entertainment menu includes global festivals, international films, visiting flamenco artists and East African drummers, salsa stars and Asian food tastings.
"DFW International created the new calendars in response to the many requests from our global community leaders who are looking for new ways to promote their exciting events. Coordinators for multicultural educational and arts organizations are welcome to post their global, interfaith, multicultural (including 'Texan' / 'Americana') activities on the DFW International calendar, where an average of 375 global activities appear each month. Activities posted on the new African and Latino Calendars calendars will also appear on the main calendar, which is delivered via email to 74,000 subscribers each Wednesday," says Anne Marie Weiss-Armush, the organizaton's founder and president. New subscribers may sign up for the weekly cultural bulletin by clicking on the CALENDAR link.
