Cultural Education Festival
The purpose of this festival is to educate our youth and community on the different cultures that are in our community. Since major events like 9/11 and other historic events, Americans usually tend to have a preconceived notion on how other cultures are. We group people together and label them either something negative or positive based on what we heard or how they appear. This festival is designed to educate our futures and begin to break down those barriers, stereotypes, and forms of racism. Even between races, cultures are not understood and are made fun of or looked down at.
It is BWV’s mission to educate and reinforce unity. It is said that America is a melting pot, so now it’s time to embrace our fellow cultures and be open minded to what is not our norm but someone else’s norm.
