Why Brazilian Culture?
Brazil has a diverse, varied, and lively culture, yet many Iowans have limited knowledge of the country and its people. Central Iowa has a growing and enthusiastic Brazilian population. They are excited to be able to share their culture with the rest of our community.
Living Cultures: Brazil is a unique opportunity to learn something about another culture through a shared experience with real people from that culture. It's a celebration where people from many different cultures can come together in the spirit of friendship and community. It's a fantastic, family-friendly party that also serves as a fundraiser for CultureALL.
In 2016, our Bollywood Ball, celebrating the fusion of cultures showcased in India's Bollywood film industry, was one of Des Moines' most talked about community events. Living Cultures: Brazil will have the same energy and spirit as the Bollywood Ball, with a uniquely Brazilian flair – but in a less formal, more kid-friendly setting. As with the Bollywood Ball, all proceeds from this event benefit CultureALL's K-12 education programs. $20 of every ticket purchase is a tax deductible donation to CultureALL.
Bring your family and friends and join the celebration!
