TASTE THE WORLD!
Our “Taste the World” message is one of celebrating Diversity, Inclusion, Community & Culture. The Atlanta International Night Market events are about celebrating people from every culture and every country with the goal of opening the hearts and minds of our participants to embrace the diversity of the human family. Learning about other culture’s food, performances, games, and traditions is an important way that we can help bring about real positive change in our global community.
We believe that in order to see the end of inequality in society we need to embrace what makes us different. For us, the concept of “Taste the World” envisions a world that embraces diversity, respects differences and actively rejects hatred and prejudice.
