Thornton High School invites the community to their First International Multicultural Festival

If you enjoy diversity and feel curious about other country’s cultures, food, habits and lives, then you have a date this Saturday April 27th, 2013 at Thornton High School (THS). The first International Multicultural Festival will take place as an initiative from students and parents, in a culturally rich and diverse school. Participants from a wide array of backgrounds and disciplines will be showing their talents, food, dress, and skills. You can learn how henna tattoos are applied, as you can also see dances from Asia, Native American, Hip Hop and Irish dance. Not to mention delicious food samples from different parts of the world. That is the beauty of diversity!

 

This beauty is also reflected on a piece of art that represents this festival, an icon that you will see in the school during this celebration. It is the image of a woman that represents diversity itself. This intricate drawing was made by Rachel Berreth, a THS student, who plans to become a professional artist and writer. Not a bad start at all! Rachel tells us, “Culture has always been very interesting to me, and this was a great opportunity to help my classmates to promote their event.” She also explained her vision of how the Spanish dancer and the globe represent different aspects of culture, from the traditional dress, the fan, to the globe. 

Engaging our youth and ourselves in the richness of culture and diversity will help us understand and get to know little pieces of the world at a time, and why not, motivate us to eventually go and travel the world. This will be a wonderful event for the family and Thornton High School is opening its doors cordially inviting the community to an afternoon of culture and fun on Saturday April 27th at 9351 Washington St. We hope to see you all there!
