About Us


It all started in 2017

 In 2017 a team of educators and community organizers met to establish a Keene International Festival. The first event, held in 2018, drew in over 500 people from around southwest New Hampshire and beyond.  In 2019, the city of Keene's Human Rights Commtitee became a partner of the event. 


Our Mission
