The 16th Annual Performing Arts Cultural Festival will take place on March 6, 2019 from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. at the Joanne and Peter Kenny Theatre in the King Student Life Centre. The event will help highlight the diverse cultures represented on the King’s campus.

“It’s an event where the entire community gets involved,” says Linda Weber, Manager, King’s International. There will be King’s students involved, as well as representatives from across Western University and the affiliate schools. There will also be performers from the greater London community.

“The performances are really top-notch and they’re representing cultures from all over the world,” says Weber.

As part of the 18 cultural performances, there will be a display of Indian Bhangra dancing and a Chinese ensemble, as well as South American, Caribbean, African and other cultures being represented.

“It’s going to be a great event. There’s dancing, there’s singing and all forms of cultural arts. It’s something you don’t want to miss and a great way to promote diversity here on the campus,” says Weber.

King’s is home to approximately 678 international students from over 33 countries from around the world.

“It’s a very diverse and inclusive environment, and we’re very proud of that,” says Joe Henry, Dean of Students.

The event is free, but donations by cash or cheque to the St. Joseph’s Hospitality Centre will be accepted. Tax receipts are available by request.
