At an annual event held at Selkirk College, students are welcoming the community to join them for a celebration that addresses some big topics, the elephant in the room.
The Education Assistant & Community Support Worker (EACSW) Program students are hosting a free afternoon event March 25 at the Selkirk College Castlegar Campus from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
The public is invited to join in the fun. Entertainment will include music, dancing, cake, a graffiti wall, crafts corner, food, face painting, human library, live performances, and so much more.
EACSW students have been hosting this event for over a decade as part of their planning class, welcoming approximately 200 people each year.
This year’s theme addresses the elephant in the room, symbolizing the difficult, big topics that society avoids discussing. Year after year, this event provides a safe space where everyone can come together and celebrate inclusion and diversity.
