THUNDER BAY – Entertainment – Lakehead University International Club is hosting a campus wide event to showcase our International students to the local community. It will be happening in conjunction with the Thunder Bay culture days.
The event, “International Students Culture Display”, will be held on Sep 29th, 2013, 12:00-2:00 pm, at Mariners Hall, Marina Park (Directions: Take Bus NO.9, NO.2, NO.11 to get to Water Terminal, Marina Park is the park beside Water Terminal. Mariners Hall is the building beside the fountain in Marina Park. Mariners Hall is in the same building as Bight Restaurant).
The goal of the event is to build a connection between the international students and the local community.
During this event, students from each country will have a stand, where they showcase the pictures or posters of their country, handcrafts from their country, traditional music instruments (for example, Chinese student will show Chinese Piano), traditional games, traditional clothes, traditional culture ceremony, pre-packed traditional snacks will also be provided to the public for free. Basically, anything special for your culture can be presented in this event. Traditional food can be shown to the public, but not to serve to the public because of the “food safety issues”. Also you can print the recipes for making your traditional food and handout to the public. Students from each country can spend up to $50 for the materials needed for displaying. The receipts will be collected on Sep 29 for reimbursement.
