Join NC State Live and the Office of Global Engagement at the Global Courtyard to give a Wolfpack welcome to the artists of Small Island Big Song. We'll share North Carolina food and culture and get to know these artists through their traditional songs and dances. NC State's Native drum group Miskwa Waya will perform alongside our special guest the Paperhand Puppet Intervention.

Help us kick off the Small Island Big Song residency week at NC State and show our southern hospitality at this celebration. Refreshments will be available.

The Global Courtyard is between Primrose and Tompkins halls, just a short walk from the Memorial Belltower and Court of North Carolina. Parking is free after 5 p.m. in the lot at 020 Watauga Club Drive.

Small Island Big Song will join filmmakers, oceanographers, scientists and artists at NC State for a slate of extraordinary events from April 8-12. This collective of Indigenous musicians comes from island nations in the Pacific and Indian oceans — Taiwan, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Madagascar, Mauritius and Easter Island (Chile) — where they are on the front lines of climate change. The week of events will come to a celebratory close when Small Island Big Song performs in Stewart Theatre on Friday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m.
