Cultural Showcase celebrates international students, diversity and talent
Release Date: March 11, 2015
The popular Camosun International Cultural Showcase, now in its eighth consecutive year, expands to welcome members of the wider community, in addition to a talented cohort of student performers. On Friday, March 20, 2015 at the Alix Goolden Performance Hall, 907 Pandora Ave., more than 12 different acts will bring cultures together and celebrate diverse expressions of talent. Admission is free for this family-friendly event.
Performances range from exuberant Bollywood dance to Japanese pop and rock songs, classical instrumental performances, Mexican folk dance, and much more.
"Students are the heart of this annual event," says Geoff Wilmshurst, Director of Camosun International. "It's been exciting to watch the showcase grow and capture the attention of the wider community. This is a night for Camosun's talented students to shine."
Presented by Camosun International and the Victoria Conservatory of Music, the Cultural Showcase is produced and organized by Camosun students. As part of the Island Savings free family concert series, select community cultural groups will also participate in the performances. The Alix Goolden Performance Hall provides the perfect stage and greater exposure to the community beyond Camosun. After a six-year run in the college's Young Auditorium, the event moved to the Alix Goolden last year due to increased popularity.
The showcase coincides with the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, promoting tolerance and acceptance of other cultures through creativity. As proud supporters of the Cultural Showcase, Camosun's African Awareness Committee and Peer Connections, Camosun International's student leadership group, will gratefully accept donations in support of the Uganda Rural Fund.
