WorldCanvass® invites you to join us at MERGE, 136 South Dubuque Street, for season ten of International Programs’ unique, internationally focused discussions.  Live programs take place from 5:30-7 p.m. in this cool new Iowa City venue and the shows are free and open to the public.  

Come early to enjoy the pre-show catered reception, starting at 5 p.m.  

Joan Kjaer, well known to public radio listeners in Eastern Iowa, has hosted WorldCanvass since its inception, engaging her guests from diverse disciplines in thoughtful conversation about questions and issues of global reach and personal impact. 

The programs are recorded as audio podcasts and are available on iTunes, the Public Radio Exchange (PRX), and the International Programs website.  University of Iowa International Programs produces the series in partnership with MERGE (see photo below). Audio production is provided by Kyle Marxen (www.kylemarxensound.com).
