Building a Better World Through Arts and Literacy
Feb.22 - Feb. 29

The Festival of International Books and Arts ( FESTIBA) was established in 2006 to promote the importance of literacy, culture and the arts to students, parents, educators and community members throughout the Rio Grande Valley. With the theme of Building a Better World, FESTIBA 2020 strives to focus on a bright future by promoting and inspiring education for sustainable development, or the idea that we must teach in a way that empowers students to provide tomorrow’s generations with the same opportunities and quality of life that we enjoy today.

UTRGV is a catalyst for our rapidly growing region's sustainable development, providing students with the education and opportunity to contribute to their community's literacy, health, and access to the creative arts in a way that will leave a lasting impact. Join us at FESTIBA to find out how you can be a part of the solution by Building a Better World!
