Global Gaggles

Participant Michael Mabwe from Zimbabwe, an artist who uses slam poetry to influence politics

Borrowing from the “Press Gaggles” held at the White House & the United Nations, the GCWAC has created its own Global Gaggles, held approximately 4-6 times a year. Thanks to our international exchange programs through the U.S. Department of State International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) visiting global experts engage local audiences in dialogue about global issues that affect us all. Our Global Gaggles are informative and open to the public. These popular programs are designed for people interested in learning about the world’s most pressing issues and networking with experts. Recent topics have included promoting social change through the arts, accountable governance and anti-human trafficking.
