Cultural Group Dancing

Thank you to faculty, staff and students across Western who contribute to making International Week such a dynamic learning experience and fun-filled week.

This year we celebrated our 10th anniversary with incredible cultural performances, fun activities, delicious food and interesting sessions related to international opportunities, timely topics and more! Stay tuned for details about International Week 2023!

We encourage faculties and departments to work on signature events for their area or partner together on interdisciplinary events. Please contact us with any questions. 

What kinds of events are possible?

  • lectures, workshops or panel presentations
  • students or others sharing international experiences or intercultural insights
  • cultural celebrations, demonstrations or performances
  • roundtable discussions to explore issues or topics related internationalization, international learning or other global themes
  • foreign films, language learning opportunities, or art exhibitions with an international theme
  • events that celebrate and recognize diversity
  • events that incorporate community partners or alumni
  • poster presentations
  • a non-event event: consider a social media campaign to foster dialogue and engage your area in a conversation about internationalization or an international topic; or encourage faculty, staff and students to talk about their international experiences in classes or as part of their daily interactions that week

Be creative! The possibilities are endless.

If you need help or are looking for a sounding board for ideas, please feel free to contact Crystal Lamb, Communications and Events Coordinator at clamb43@uwo.ca or ext. 81350.
