The Cultural Showcase will be similar to the IESC’s Global Café, a weekly drop-in event where international and Canadian students alike can come together to meet new friends in an informal setting over complimentary coffee, tea, snacks and fun activities. The Cultural Showcase aims to provide students with a fun way to take a break from their studies and connect with other students from all over the world while promoting and celebrating diversity on campus.
All Western students and staff are welcome and encouraged to attend this fun, free event to kick off International Week and celebrate diversity on campus. No registration is required and with food, refreshments, amazing performances, activities and other fun surprises, this event is sure to be a hit!
