An international tapestry of art, dance, music, poetry, storytelling and food from all around the world will fill Capitol Park during Global Lounge's inaugural 2015 World Village Festival.

"We want to promote inclusiveness ... like we're all one" said Dayo Ayodele, executive director of Global Lounge. Ayodele is originally from Nigeria, and he founded Global Lounge to help refugees and immigrants acclimate to life in the Treasure Valley without losing their cultural heritage.

"When people move here from other countries they want to preserve aspects of their culture; so [with World Village], we offer a medium for them to perform and do other things," Ayodele said.
