Julia Bland is CEO of the Louisiana Children’s Museum (LCM). This year, on March 25, the Children’s Museum will celebrate its 19th Annual Children’s World’s Fair Fundraiser. This popular event is a a day-long journey that gives children the opportunity to explore cultural diversity through the games, music, literature, arts, flavors and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activities of eight unique countries. As Bland points out, “People who are representing each country were actually born in that country…It’s so exciting to see people really energetic around sharing their culture.” In this podcast, Bland describes the LCM’s outreach programs and explains the paramount importance of early childhood development.
