This blog has been created for the Teen Global Exchange, a program that brings together students from Indianapolis, U.S.A.; Ponce, Puerto Rico; and Venice, Italy on a trip to the 2011 Venice Biennale.  The students will explore themes of art, culture, national identity, diplomacy and a host of other topics – both in their meetings in preparation for their trip and when they finally join together in Venice.  This blog will serve as a forum for these discussions – a place for the students to explore their ideas, communicate with their international peers, and prepare for the exciting experience ahead.  In conclusion, you’ll want to check back often for frequent updates and inspiring conversations.
