UNCG’s International Programs Center seeks community members to host booths and performances at 37th annual International Festival on campus
Greensboro, North Carolina- The International Programs Center (IPC) of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) coordinates and develops the University’s international activities to help ensure that the University achieves its international goals. IPC announces a call for cultural booths and performers for the 37th annual International Festival (I-Fest) on the university’s campus Kaplan Commons (Elliott University Center Lawn) on April 6th from 12pm-5pm. I-Fest is one of UNCG’s largest and longest running events that brings together the campus and surrounding communities for a celebration of culture and global learning.
IPC is seeking community members to host cultural booths and performances. A booth gives the opportunity for international members of the community to represent their country, region or culture with attendees via dialogue, visual displays and other interactive activities of their liking. Performances can consist of any art form including dance, singing, musical instruments, martial arts and storytelling. This is a great opportunity to showcase the diversity, culture and color of our community.
By combining the different components of culture, I-Fest helps attendees interact and learn from people from all over the world without leaving Greensboro. The festival serves as a safe space for our different cultures to interact and learn from one another.
The cultural booths and performances are the integral focus of I-Fest. Festival goers will take their “passport” as they travel to the many different countries represented at the booths for an engaging experience that is sure to be fun for the whole family. IPC looks forward to assisting community members with their cultural displays as we continue to emphasize all that makes our community unique. If you or someone you know is interested in participating, please contact IPC’s Programming Coordinator, Stephanie Guzman via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
