Unity and Diversity (U&D) will be held at the Globe Theatre on August 18th with two performances, the matinee at 1pm and the evening performance at 7pm. Ticket prices are to be confirmed.
U&D’s aim is to celebrate the variety of cultures that are on campus, and the cultures that exist within Massey University and Palmerston North, with performances by these groups.
For the first time in a while it’s being organised by one person. Lynelle Munns, who has stepped into the recently created role of club support person, will be taking on this feat with some pretty big ambitions. She does however, have the support of the committee who have organised it in the past.
The event used to he hosted at The Regent on Broadway but over the years it has downsized. Lynelle hopes to make it “bigger and return it to its former glory.”
Last year there were a range of performances by Malaysia, Indonesia, Pasifika, Papua New Guinea, Merlion, Massey Choir and the Fire Club.
While U&D typically has an international focus, this is not restrictive as any club can enter.
To give a wider focus Lynelle is inviting clubs from the Massey Wellington campus.
Lynelle has big plans wanting to extend invites to school groups “Once this one is out of the way.”
“This year we are waiting on the clubs to see what they will have, and what students they will have next semester.”
So if you represent a club and want to show case your stuff, Unity and Diversity could be what you’re after.
