Share some culture: volunteer for the Multicultural Fair

March 24, 2013 at 10:57 pm

On Saturday, April 13, the Help Yourself Programs will host the 19th Annual Multicultural Fun Fair on the Beloit College Campus. The purpose of this yearly event is to encourage increased inter- and intra-personal understanding as well as cultural awareness. Students will experience exhibits, entertainment, and food from a diverse array of cultures.

Although admission to this event is only open to Help Yourself participants and their families, as a part of the event, we would like to invite Beloit College students, staff, and faculty to participate by creating a table or giving a performance representing their native country or any country of their choice/interest. Do you have a special talent such as singing, dancing or playing an instrument that will enhance the understanding of a culture? Display your talent to our Help Yourself Families! Past performances have included the playing of bagpipes, Mexican Folk dance and African dance.  

Each exhibitor will be provided with a six-foot table for displays. Past exhibits have included cultural clothing, food, flags, toys, cultural games, hands-on displays, and explanations of cultural difficulties, concerns, and/or issues. We ask that each exhibit be as interactive as possible. If you are interested in participating, contact Regina Hendrix  at hendrixr@beloit.edu by Wednesday (March 27).
