The goal of the second annual Multicultural Festival at the University of West Georgia was to highlight and celebrate cultural diversity and it wasn’t hard to find examples.
You had to look no farther than seeing members of the Andes band dancing with the Native American Preservation Association members to find a highlight to the Thursday event at UWG.
About 300 people took time to watch performers and learn about different cultures of the world. Representatives of five consulates spent time answering questions while the consulate generals of Peru, Taiwan and Canada gave presentations. Doris Kieh, one of the organizers of the event, said Nigeria and Japanese representatives were also at the event.
