Bound to be a highlight of International Week, Wintec’s CultureFest on 20 September will bring together staff, students and community members to enjoy an evening of delicious ethnic food and colourful cultural performances.

Wintec’s director of internationalisation, Jason Matangi says in an increasingly virtual world, CultureFest brings people from different cultures together and promotes inclusion.

"CultureFest is an opportunity for students to showcase their cultures and celebrate their diversity.

"We have more than 50 different cultures on campus amongst our staff and students. Cultural diversity creates a rich on-campus environment and in our interconnected world, the ability to interact and work across cultures is becoming a standard skill requirement for all of us."

The event is open to everyone, free to attend and the first 400 Wintec students will receive a free meal. There will also be dancing, music and prizes up for grabs.

CultureFest is part of Hamilton’s inaugural International Week celebrations - a joint initiative between Wintec, the University of Waikato, Hamilton City Council and Waikato District Police.

Each organisation will host events during a week-long programme of events which celebrate our city’s diversity from 17 - 21 September.
