The 22nd annual Multicultural Day will be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2012, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Moorpark College campus. This year’s theme is “Dance with the Conflict.” Multicultural Day is an officially sanctioned alternative day of instruction designed by faculty, staff, and students. It fosters knowledge, sensitivity, understanding, and appreciation for cultures around the world via learning activities from many diverse areas.
The festival features lectures, breathtaking performances, exhibits, thought-provoking presentations, demonstrations, panel discussions, experiential exercises, innovative storytelling, inspiring music, rhythmic dance, dramatic theater, and hands-on activities. All of this is coupled with informational, educational, and merchant booths from local and international organizations, including appetizing food offerings.
As part of Multicultural Day 2012 activities, Rainn Wilson, best known for his Emmy-nominated role as Dwight Schrute on the television comedy, “The Office,” Kathryn Adams, Professor of English/Writing Center, Moorpark College, and author, Holiday Reinhorn, will provide a presentation on “Young Women Transforming the Future of Haiti” in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) from 7-9 p.m. Wilson, Adams, and Reinhorn will speak about their experiences as volunteers in Haiti. Please arrive early as seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
