Ethno Fest 2021!
U Multicultural is once again providing its platform and experience for the ethnocultural communities of Manitoba to share their culture, backgrounds, and stories. Starting August 16, 2021, the digital festival Ethno Fest 2021 will be available online at www.u‑channel.ca and on cable TV networks in Winnipeg and across Canada. Everyone interested is welcome to experience media stories, interviews with the most influential community members of various ethnic communities, watch performances 24⁄7, and much more.
“I would like to start by thanking everyone for supporting this amazing and unique U Multicultural event, Ethnofest 2021. Ethno Fest is truly a place where every culture has a voice in our diverse community. Join us, and you will have a backstage pass to learn of the different cultures interviewed in our communities. Your pass will give you access to the language, music, dance, food, and history of each culture unique to every individual. Join us during this amazing adventure and enjoy all that Ethnofest 2021 has to offer. - Paulo Bergantim, Chair, U Multicultural.
“I can’t stress enough how important it is for everyone to understand and take part in spreading Multiculturalism in Manitoba. Each tradition is unique in its own way and has paramount significance to the community. Ethno Fest’s mission is to celebrate strength in diversity by enabling the meaningful exchange and full community participation among people of all backgrounds and circumstances.” - Ashas Irfan, Board member, U Multicultural.
U Multicultural was created to be the space for people across Canada to learn about Manitoban communities, their culture, traditions, and contributions to the public.
U Multicultural has already elevated the voices of over 30 underrepresented communities here in Manitoba and stands for preserving and promoting diverse languages and cultures by showcasing the creativity and talents of local people, celebrating the principles of inclusion and multiculturalism, and enabling an environment for people to learn about the history and traditions of their neighbours.
“Ethno Fest is a wonderful opportunity to connect all communities from all the corners of the globe right here in Winnipeg! It allows people to feel at home, even if it’s 6,000 miles away. Like Luana Cunha, from Rio de Janeiro — the face of EthnoFest 2021. U Multicultural Channel has been doing a brilliant job to help all cultures to feel represented, recognized and appreciated through their events.” - Maggie Demarchi, Board member.
Participation in Ethno Fest 2021 is free. U Multicultural encourages any organization or individual willing to showcase culture or traditions to contact U Multicultural at: [email protected]‑channel.ca.
