Camosun College International's Peer Connections members, both international and domestic students, are excited to present the third annual Cultural Talent Show on March 21. The result of many hours of hard work by the Peer Connections program, this evening program is an opportunity to connect cultures at the college and in the community. Camosun College students will share varied artistic performances including Mexican folk dancing, as well as music—both instrumental and vocal—from Canada, China, Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia and other cultures.
Peer Connections members, along with the performers involved in the Cultural Talent Show also recognizes the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination which is observed annually on March 21. The worldwide observation of this day serves as a reminder of the collective rights for promoting the first article contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which affirms that "all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights".
Everyone is welcome to this sharing of talent and culture. Donations will be accepted at the door, which opens at 6pm, for both the Help Lesotho project in Southern Africa, in collaboration with the Camosun College African Awareness Committee (AAC), as well as for the Red Cross Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami fund. Funds raised will go towards education resources and other basic needs for AIDS orphans in the city of Lesotho and to assist victims of the Earthquake/Tsunami in northeast Japan.
