FYE Arts and Culture week 2013 is well underway.
It kicked off Monday evening as students gathered in Friesen Center to participate in a Japanese Sushi making event. The class was taught by students Myu Kobayashi, Narumi Hayano, and Masayo Satoh.
“Sushi Night was interesting, being able to share my culture’s food,” said Kobayashi. “It’s not just food but a cultural experience as well.”
Tuesday afternoon students gathered to take part a Writer’s Circle focused on writing for wellness. Anastasia Delgado, a multicultural scholar for First Year Seminar led the event.
“The writing circle was great. The dynamic made writing and sharing easy and fun to be open, “said Becca Southern.
Students have the opportunity Wednesday evening to participate in a theater workshop, “Feeling at Home on the Stage: Creating an Environment of Partnership and Hospitality,” led by Rachel Jantzi. Or, they can take a Japanese calligraphy skills class led by student Masayo Satoh. The film “Monsieur Lazhar” is being shown Thursday night.
