Enjoy a fun-sized world’s fair at Taste of Culture, hosted by UM's Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (MESA) and the Trotter Multicultural Center (TMC). The free festival features cuisines from around the globe as well as performances and activities that will include a henna artist and face painting. “We involve as many cultures as are represented at the University of Michigan,” says Community Development Program Manager Yakaira Alexander-Ramos. Mexico, Japan, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, India, and Jamaica are just some of the countries and regions represented “We just want to provide this experience so that everyone—from families with babies to the elderly—can have a wonderful day, and also walk away with a new understanding of the diversity of our community,” says Yakaira. “It’s a great way to celebrate the coming year!” Plenty of parking will be available at nearby Angell Elementary School on South University Street.
Sunday, September 8, 2-6pm Trotter Multicultural Center, 1443 Washtenaw Ave., Ann Arbor. 734-763-3670. mesa.umich.edu/article/taste-culture
