Diversity under one roof
It was an eclectic extravaganza that brings with it a constellation of cultures, plethora of events, creative minds and talents and a gamut of glamour.
the Limkokwing Cultural Festival was a worthy celebration of the university’s unity in diversity tag.
It was a celebration of harmony in the diversity of cultures, music and dance with an array of international delicacies.
the festivities were held right in the heart of the university in Cyberjaya and it brought together students from almost 165 countries who got to experience unique sounds, food and a taste of almost all of the world’s countries in one place.
Everyone had the chance to see, taste, hear, listen and experience when students across the globe shared their views and spread the message of peace, unity and intercultural harmony.
the bazaar consisted of 53 booths – each representing a particular country and showcasing unique crafts or food of the respective countries.
the festival, which touched the hearts of everyone present, was purely a student-run initiative by the distinguished International Student Ambassadors.
Organising chairman and Interior Architecture student David Gituen Marcus said: “the organising of this event just shows how much support the university has provided to our individual communities.”
“this is one of the most important annual events on our campus,” said Limkokwing’s vice-president of Brand, Creativity and talent Development Datuk tiffannee Marie Lim.
“It is important that we remember to celebrate our strengths and our values. Diversity remains one of Limkokwing’s highest priorities.”
Proceeds from the sales will go towards the university’s Heal the World Foundation, which has helped raise funds for Haiti’s earthquake, Pakistan’s floods, and is now well on its way to rebuilding a children’s school for 300 in San Remingio, Cebu, which was destroyed by typhoon Haiyan.
Limkokwing has campuses in Asia, Africa and Europe with the aim to provide extensive education opportunities to talented students who will be assets to the industry be it in Event Management, Event Design, Business Development, Professional and Visual Communications, Corporate Relations, Advertising, Performance Arts, Sound and Music Design, Information technology, Architecture and Interior Design or Graphic Design.
