Please join us for an evening of food, fun, and enlightenment on Friday, November 16th, 6-8:30pm, in BBOX.


Unity Fest (formally known as Culture Fest) is a day in which we celebrate diversity at MICA. The goal of this event is to create a day where people can have fun and make new friends, while also learning something deeper about each others’ identity.

Diversity is a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts, which include race, ethnic origin and color, religion and creed, language, sexual orientation, gender presentation, philosophy, values, age and ability, to name but a few.

As ever evolving creatures in an ever changing world, the innumerable aspects of our humanity - all our ways of being, knowing and moving through the world - are contained in this one concept.

Celebrating our differences, as well as our common interests, helps unite and educate us. All of this - and more - makes diversity something to celebrate. We hope you will join us in celebrating- YOU!
