Thank You! * 2015 International Carnival * 2015国際カーニバル

11月29日(日)に、高崎市立南小学校の体育館で「2015国際カーニバル」を開催しました。JOMO JETのメンバーだけではなく、35人以上の在住外国人のボランティアに協力していただきました。多くの参加者が来場し、ポスター、体験、パフォーマンスなどを通して、色々な国や文化に触れていただきました。




イベントの最後には、アフリカ系アメリカ人文化のブースのボランティアたちに「チャチャスライド」というアメリカで人気のダンスを教えてもらい、参加者、ボランティア、そしてJOMO JETメンバー全員で踊りました。


The 2015 International Festival was held on Sunday, November 29th at the Takasaki Minami Elementary gymnasium. JOMO JET members worked together with over 35 foreign resident volunteers to make this event happen, and many participants joined us in learning about different countries and cultures through posters, booths, demonstrations, and performances.

We had booths representing Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Germany, Columbia, Australia, the United Kingdom, African American Culture, and Canada. In addition to sharing information about their country or culture, these booths gave participants a chance to try crafts, snacks, dances, and simple phrases in their languages.

We also had carnival booths such as face painting, ring toss, and flag coloring quizzes for participants to enjoy.

At the stage area, we had several performances and game demonstrations, including dances from the Philippines (Subli) and Indonesia (Tari Merak), a banjo performance, song performances, arm wrestling, and more.

At the end of the event, we had all participants and volunteers gather to do a popular African American dance called the Cha Cha Slide together under the instruction of the African American Culture booth volunteers.

Thank you to all the volunteers and participants who made this wonderful International Carnival possible, and we hope to see you again next year!
