The First Annual SJSU Cultural Showcase ~ Yes, We Can!

April 17, 2014 is already more than a month behind us, but for those of us who worked on the First Annual Cultural Showcase, the memories of all of our hard work and the final results are still fresh in our minds. This experience has been a source of continued inspiration. It demonstrated what a few creative Salzburg Scholars with a passion for change and the drive to work hard can accomplish.

Conceived last fall by Erin Enguero, the Cultural Showcase was meant to be a student-run event that would celebrate and highlight the rich cultural and global diversity of SJSU. Several fellow Salzburg Scholars became excited to work with Erin on her project and promote global citizenship through an educational and fun concert. We’re proud to say that we ended up creating a truly special event for our learning community. While planned long before the hate crime that shook our campus last fall, for many of us, the showcase became a way to show solidarity and respond to such hatred with love for all cultures at SJSU. It was a way for our campus community to come together and share with one another. The energy in the room the day of the show was exhilarating!
