WorldVIU Days

November 1-5, 2021

This special week explores how culture influences the way we make sense of the world - our world view.

Join us as we engage students, faculty and program/service areas in finding new ways to create a connected community and showcase efforts that students, staff and faculty are making to increase social connections between people from different cultural backgrounds. We're also proud to announce that the week will include the fifth annual Intercultural Hip Hop Forum, which will explore identity, culture, and community building through hip hop. 

How can YOU get involved?

  • Host a virtual or in-person event or activity in your class
  • Bring your class to an event or activity that is already in the works or being hosted by another instructor
  • Weave related content into your course planning, and use the events as a venue for your students to share their learning
  • Organize an event where your students could: present their projects, lead an activity or facilitate a discussion
  • Other ideas are welcome!

To get the ball rolling, please contact Mackenzie.Sillem@viu.ca.

The purpose of the week is to:

  • Raise awareness and build appreciation for the cultural diversity on campus
  • Celebrate culture and recognize the richness that diverse perspectives bring to our campus and community

 

Returning in 2021

WorldVIU Days will host the annual Intercultural Hip Hop Forum, exploring identity, culture, and community building through hip hop. With workshops, performances, and a panel discussion, this forum connects VIU at a whole new level!
