cultural booth

Come see us at the Canada Booth!

Canada will be represented again this year at the Raleigh International Festival on Oct 26-28.  We invite you to drop by the Canada Cultural Booth to see how we’ve interpreted this year’s theme, Celebrations Around the World.  (You might want to wear a tuque or mukluks!)  We have a wonderful team of Canadian volunteers ready to welcome you on all three days of the festival.

There will be dancing, music, culture, food and much more! Join us on Friday, Oct. 26 (10:30am – 10pm), Saturday, Oct. 27 (10am – 10pm) and Sunday, Oct. 28 (11am – 7pm). Visit the Raleigh International Festival website to purchase tickets or view the schedules

The Canada Cultural Booth is organized by Canadian Network of North Carolina in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta and the generous support of RBC Bank.

Advocacy of Cultural Awareness

We’re getting ready to design the Canada Booth for the 2018 Raleigh International Festival and, while digging through some old documents, the booth coordinator found this little gem (well, she is an archaeologist!). Year 2010 was when Canada joined the many cultural groups who participate in the festival to offer the people of North Carolina a little taste of the world.

Would you like to join Team Canada and host the Canada Booth in 2018? Simply send us an email at canadabooth.cnnc (a) gmail.com  and we will let you know when we start scheduling booth volunteers!

Booth 2017: Day 3

Another wonderful day at the Canada Booth and the last of this year’s International Festival. The combination of the colourful superheroes and the contemplative black and white didactics about the real, human heroes was a success. We got great compliments about the booth all weekend: eye-catching, educational, fun, well-designed with easy to read panels, and–most important–hosted by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers.

Here are a few photos of today’s action at the Booth.

Thank you to our superb volunteers who hosted today: Carol, Caroline, Helen, Frank, Ethan, Paul, and Gary.

 

 

Booth 2017: Day 2

Another great day at the Canada Booth enlightening puzzled visitors who didn’t realize that Superman had a Canadian connection (artist and co-creator Joe Shuster was born in Toronto). More people took time to also look at the true Canadian heroes today. Several were amazed at the diversity of the heroic human on our walls and at their courage, valour and accomplishments.

Thank you to our fantastic volunteers who hosted the Booth today: Gary, Paul, Joe, Jane, Susana, Ian, Donna, Alara, Caitlyn, Nedelka. Karissa, Martin and Caroline!
