Culture X 2009: Rise Up

This slideshow requires Flash 8 or later

Culture X, the Intercultural Center's annual variety show, celebrated and embraced the diverse identities that make up the world on April 4. Organizers hoped the night would remind the standing-room-only crowd of the many things the human race has achieved, and encourage communities to come together through talents and passions and rise up in an effort to create a newfound hope.

This year, Culture X partnered with Live Campus, an intercollegiate initiative based at Brandeis that is working to reduce and ultimately end extreme poverty. Proceeds raised at Culture X will benefit one of the 11 organizations Live Campus supports. For more information, visit the Live Campus Web site. Search for Culture X 2009: Rise Up.
