Hello everyone - we would like to take a moment to re-introduce the society! You may have known us as The Cultural Society, but we have decided to rebrand as The BAME Society. Our intention was always to highlight opportunities for students that are from a Black, Asian or Minority background, and to spread awareness about different issues that these ethnic groups may face. We feel as though our name change reflects our original purpose for the society - for it to be a welcoming environment for all students, but also particularly students from a BAME background.
We will still be having lots of fun events, highlighting different cultural customs and giving the spotlight to students from a BAME background. We will also be incorporating more debates, discussions and collaborations with other societies! Our re-brand simply means that we can better use our platform to combat challenges students from a BAME background may face and to allow people from different backgrounds to mix.
A BIG thank you to everyone that has supported us so far and that has shown up to all of our previous events!! Your membership to the society remains and we look forward to seeing you at our next event, this Friday March 19th.
