“Around the dinner table we find that we are more alike than different”
Our new challenge “Who’s at the Table” is all about sharing a meal with someone from a different culture, faith, or way of life than your own. While you share and explore, put your addiction to Instagram to good use and upload a photo of your meal to our site. These photos will be used in an art installment at Urbana 12!
