“I know there is strength in the differences between us. I know there is a comfort, where we overlap.” – Ani DiFranco
The cultural cradle of Canada, Winnipeg is home to several famous cultural exhibits. At The University of Winnipeg (UoW), Professional, Applied and Continuing Education (PACE) hosts over 100 international students every year. However, this diversity doesn’t make us different; it instead unites us and makes us realise, people of all colour and ethnic diversity feel the same way.
Every year for the past six years, PACE Student Life Team organises an annual event to celebrate our cultural distinctiveness. The goal is to bring students, friends and families under one roof and to engage into each other’s traditional background. The Cultural Night committee plans this event with intricate detail also offering several sponsorship opportunities and a platform to express. Last year, the event was themed, “Unite Under The Light” and was supported by a local start-up SkiptheDishes, government agency Parks Canada, and beauty school Aveda Institute & Academy Salon and a few more.
This 2018 PACE Seventh Annual Cultural Night will enhance last year’s theme and once again Unite us under the light, to mark our presence and pay homage to the land of opportunities and hope. The night will be held in one of Canada’s leading art museums, Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) on 19th January 2018. Each year, the evening commences as over 300 people pour-in to attend the gala. Following the tradition, it will kick-off with some exciting and fantastic solo and group performances, followed by the Special Guest Performance of Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and a Global Fashion Show showcasing the real art of diversity.
Prepare yourself for the most awaited event of the year at UWinnipeg PACE. Save the date, and grace us with your presence and feel free to bring along your friends and family for this celebratory. Limited tickets are available at this point. If you are still interested, please register here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/pace-7th-annual-cultural-night-tickets-41835163099
We believe, the beauty of culture and diversity is experiencing it from within. #uwpaceculture
