Podcast: Fair highlights cultural diversity through food, music, and art
March 08, 2009
For more than 40 years, the International Fair has offered an opportunity for the campus and the general public to celebrate the diverse cultures and traditions of Lewis & Clark’s international student community.
Hosted by International Students of Lewis and Clark (ISLC), the International Fair is a day-long event, featuring food, cultural displays, activities, and performances representing cultures from around the world.
“We’re trying to engage the larger LC community, as well as the neighborhood, alumni and parents in this festival,” said organizer Shelley Zhao, a senior mathematics and physics double major. “It’s a great way to celebrate the diversity and cultures of students from different regions.”
With more than 100 student volunteers and participants, this year’s event, titled “Spices of the World,” will take place on Saturday, March 7 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In this podcast interview, Zhao and co-chair Sara Eichelberger, a senior International Affairs major, share their hopes for this year’s event.
