Vincent Massey High School Presents Culturama: A Vibrant Celebration of Cultural Diversity. Vincent Massey High School was thrilled for the return of Culturama, a spectacular two-day event that celebrates an array of cultures within our school community. On May 25th and 26th, Culturama offered a unique opportunity for students and staff to come together.

As Culturama is all about embracing and appreciating the various cultures represented in our student body, the lunch hour was extended for these two special days, allowing everyone to fully celebrate our collective diversity. During the event, students and staff had the chance to sample cuisine, watch students perform cultural dances and songs, admire the beauty of traditional outfits, and explore intriguing displays from the participating countries.

Vincent Massey is proud of the tremendous effort put forth by a large group of dedicated volunteers including over 170 students, 2S teachers and staff, Student Council, and Massey Nations. Together, they organized 13 incredible pavilions representing 23 countries. The library was abuzz with students in cultural attire serving food and sharing information from their displays. Meanwhile, the gym and theatre were packed with students watching the live performances.

Culturama traces back to 2006, when Vincent Massey introduced Heritage Days. With four pavilions during the inaugural year, Vincent Massey was the first school in the Brandon School Division to host such a celebration. Over the years, it has grown exponentially, becoming an eagerly anticipated event that captures the spirit of unity and cultural pride. As described by Eleni Tellidis, one of the teachers organizing the event, “Culturama holds a special place in our hearts, and we are thrilled to bring it back after a three-year hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
