During the 2003-2004 academic year, high school and grade school classes created paper tiles (drawings) and sent these works (along with emails) to other schools throughout the world to encourage international dialog and cross cultural understanding. Like the "public art component," upon receiving their counterparts' set of tiles, each class created a mosaic like installation at their own institution. Thanks to Smart Meeting Design, each of the participating classes also received free virtual space to create their own web pages for the project. While engaging K-12 classes in different world-wide sites to take partake in the project, TransCultural Exchange also set up virtual, international student exchanges to encourage dialogue and personal contact among the students. Whenever possible, TransCultural Exchange also invited the artists participating in The Tile Project, Destination: The World to meet with the students.
