One World, a student-run organization at Tennessee Tech University, will host its multicultural evening Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 6 p.m. in the Tech Pride Room of the Roaden University Center.

The event is designed to introduce people from different countries and cultures to each other and raise awareness and understanding of diversity. Food from cultures around the world is provided.

Guest speaker Todd Jarrell is an independent director, producer, writer and videographer. His passion for travel and world culture has led him to more 50 countries across seven continents and 70,000 miles of tall ship voyaging. Jarrell began producing when, after 15 years in television advertising, he joined a round-the-world tall ship voyage, working as crew while creating a public radio series from such places as Easter Island, Bora Bora and Zanzibar. The series published as the audiobook “Slow Dance with the Planet” was lauded for its excellence in narrative voice and style.

This is a Center Stage event, made possible by the university’s general education fund. It is free and open to the public.

The Roaden University Center is located at 1000 N. Dixie Ave. in Cookeville.
