Inaugural Culturama Event Brings Community Together
Centennial College’s Culture and Heritage Institute celebrated a splendid five years of service to the community with Culturama on June 3rd. A display of colours, sounds, rhythms and flavours, the community was invited to experience what the various cultures around the world had to offer.
With 11 performances that ranged from folk dances to classical acts, to traditional culture and heritage practices, to the infusion of contemporary practices in art, music, drama and food fare from Canada, South Asia, Caribbean, East Asia and the Mediterranean, the day displayed the effervescent landscape that makes Canada so distinctively unique.
Culturama 2012, however, represents more than aesthetic and intangible qualities. It is representative of Toronto’s multicultural community, bringing various cultures together into one event. It celebrates Toronto’s diversity and presents an opportunity to see our city’s thriving multicultural culture. Though Culturama 2012 is much smaller than many of the cultural and artistic events of Toronto, it is still representative of Toronto’s commitment to various forms of expression and identity. Culturama 2012 represents community-driven efforts to ensure that every nationality and every cultural movement has a way of showcasing their cultural importance to locals and tourists alike.
Culturama’s inaugural year was a stunning success and patrons can only expect another spectacular showing next year!
