Coleg Cambria Yale

by Love Wrexham Magazine

Launched last year, the Culture Collective is a student-led group organising events and activities at Coleg Cambria Yale in Wrexham.

The latest was a showcase of arts, dance, music, literature, poetry, and fashion held at the college’s Iâl Restaurant with ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) learners. Supported by funding via the Welsh Government’s Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan.

More than 100 people in attendance also had a tea-tasting session. With a selection of flavours on display from a wide range of countries, including Japan and Algeria, and also a performance by Big Ideas Wales Role Model Joseph George, who has Nigerian tribal roots.

He came along in traditional dress and played drums while singing established songs. He was followed by Music student Michal Borkowski, who played classic Hungarian instruments.

Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Coordinator Judith Alexander and Lead Chaplain Tim Feak have been leading the programme. They are thrilled with the response so far.

“Showcasing our learners’ cultural diversity, traditions, and interests fosters respect. It widens our understanding of our differences and the things we have in common,” said Judith.

“We are very fortunate to have such a diverse community within the college and are able to offer such opportunities to come together and broaden our own perspectives and experiences through food and the arts.”

Tim added: “It was a special event and so inspiring to see the depth of skills, passion, and diversity that we have in our college.”
