Central Asian Awareness Day April 23 at UW

April 13, 2017

The Central Asian Student Organization (CASA) at the University of Wyoming will celebrate Central Asian Awareness Day and New Year (Navruz) Sunday, April 23.

The program begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Ballroom. The program will feature a musical show, including guest performers; speakers, traditional performances, a clothing presentation and other visual presentations about Central Asia. Traditional cuisine also will be served.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Tickets will be distributed Wednesday and Thursday, April 19-20, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Wyoming Union information desk.

CASA, established in October 2011 as a recognized student organization at UW, was formed to create and promote a better understanding of Central Asia and its rich culture and history among students, faculty and local community through involvement, and participation in various social and cultural activities.

The organization has presented many cultural events on campus and in the community. CASA has won three times for top country display during International Education Week at UW. The group’s table was voted the best cultural display by organizers of the event.

“By showing Central Asian heritage, our students develop close relationships and deepened intercultural understanding,” says Dilnoza Khasilova, CASA president.
