COD’s Asia Club promotes diverse Asian cultures in a culturally diverse environment including history, art, music, sports, and food. They are dedicated to expanding their knowledge of the different parts of Asia, which they believe is more important than ever before because of its economic importance and because of the increasing number of Asian people living in our communities. They currently have around 50 members and sometimes collaborate with other cultural/ethnic clubs such as Chinese Club and Japanese Club.
Every year they hold a Spring Cultural Show here at the college to help promote what their club is about – focusing on a “kaleidoscope of cultures,” as advisor Lubna Haque likes to describe it.
The event calls for individuals wanting to share their talents such as laying musical instruments, singing, dancing, fashion show, reciting poetry, performing comedy, or something else of this nature with an Asian theme.
“We are open to participation of people of all different cultures and religious groups,” commented Haque.
Auditions will be held March 15, 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM in room BIC 1406. The show will be April 11 from 1 to 3 PM. If someone is unable to make it to the auditions, they can send a short video to Vienna Sou, Asia Club president, at souw dupage.edu by March 14.
