Paducah Welcomes Students from UNESCO Associated School, Three Rivers Local School District
Art students from Taylor High School, a member of the UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet), traveled to Paducah, a UNESCO Creative City of Crafts & Folk Art, for an immersive study tour. The UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet) consists of over 11,500 ASPnet member schools in 182 countries working in support of international understanding, peace, intercultural dialogue, sustainable development, and quality education. Marney Murphy, the District’s Media Specialist, and Sue Diemer, Taylor High School Art Teacher, envisioned the creative learning experience to expose the students to cultural richness and creative industries. The educators collaborated with the Paducah Convention & Visitors Bureau, local focal point for connections with the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, to coordinate the tour to include various local best practices and spotlight domestic and international connections through the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.
