Students and staff at Murdoch University will have the world at their feet as the South Street campus turns into a cultural marketplace to celebrate Multicultural Day on Thursday, September 5.

The event features stalls from 15 cultures and nations represented in the Murdoch student body, with international students selling food from, and providing information and insight about, their cultures.

The colourful affair will also feature national dress, traditional dancing and music.

“This is a chance for our over 2000 international students to share their culture with fellow students, staff and members of the public,” said Murdoch Inbound Exchange Coordinator Russ Braby, himself from the United States.

“We want to get Australians interested in places they may one day want to visit, or perhaps go to on exchange, and it’s a great way to get International students to meet and share stories.

“Living in a different country is always challenging, so this is about celebrating home and finding and supporting others studying at Murdoch, as well as having some fun, of course.”

The event will run from 10am to 2pm and everyone is welcome.
