WASHINGTON, DC – Second Lady Karen Pence will travel to Tallinn, Estonia; Tbilisi, Georgia; and Podgorica, Montenegro July 29-August 2, 2017.
In Podgorica, Montenegro, Mrs. Pence will tour a honey farm where she will learn about a local family’s beekeeping business. Following the visit, Mrs. Pence will participate in a cultural tour of Lake Skadar, the largest lake on the Balkan Peninsula.
In Tallinn, Estonia, Mrs. Pence will tour a medical center and participate in a roundtable discussion with art therapists. Art therapy is a relatively new discipline in Estonia, but is growing. There are approximately 45 individuals in the country who practice art therapy, with about half working in Tallinn or the surrounding area.
In Tbilisi, Georgia, the Second Lady will visit with patients of an art therapy program and view their artwork. She will also participate in a roundtable discussion with art therapists. Art therapy is an emerging profession in Georgia with only a few professionally trained art therapists in the country. After the art therapy visit, Mrs. Pence will visit an exhibit of paintings inspired by Robert Frost’s poems at the Tbilisi History Museum Karvasla.
