Sister Cities International: 2022 Theme, Generation Rescue Sustainable Water For All
On February 3, Suffolk Sister Cities International hosted the opening reception for the 33rd Annual Young Artists and Authors Showcase at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts. Each year, the showcase encourages youth from around the globe to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork and literature.
In coordination with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, Sister Cities International adopted climate change as the overarching theme for the showcase in both 2022 and 2023. The official theme for the 2022 Young Artists and Authors Showcase is Generation Rescue: Sustainable Water for All. The juried exhibition is on display at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts through March 1, and admission is free and open to the public.
