WSU Seeking Presenters for Cultural Exchange Event

OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University is seeking presenters and groups from along the Wasatch Front to raise cultural awareness by providing interactive demonstrations and presentations at an upcoming campus event.

On March 29, event organizers plan to host Culture Shock, four hours of demonstrations, presentations, dances, music, poetry and other activities designed to offer a greater awareness and appreciation for all the different cultures that co-exist in our region. The event will take place in WSU’s Shepherd Union Ballroom from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be free to the public.

“This isn’t about setting up a booth or handing out brochures,” said event organizer Keith Wilder. “We want this to be an experience that stimulates the senses and engages people—something that immerses them in a variety of cultures and offers them an opportunity to actively participate in different cultural customs and traditions.”

Organizers are seeking presenters who can offer cultural insights into ethnic, racial, geographic, religious or regional diversity.

For more information or to sign up to present at the event, call 626-6349.
