Washington, D.C. is the type of international hub where cultural diplomacy sits right alongside political diplomacy. In this tour, visit a for-profit firm that intersects embassies and museums across the country, an embassy that has placed cultural diplomacy at the core of its mission, and the famed Smithsonian Folk Life Festival, which will converge the cultural traditions of Brazil and the United Arab Emirates in a celebration on the National Mall. Preparation: All tours will leave from the hotel. Transportation is provided to and from the hotel. Attendees should plan to wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Tours will take place regardless of weather, so dress appropriately. Bring a camera or phone to capture and share your experience - remember #AFTACON!
