2 mins read

Stirling University’s Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) society is welcoming everyone to join them for their event at the university tomorrow night.

On Friday, September 15, MENA are holding an event to showcase both the culture and the society itself.

The event will run from 6pm to 8pm and is to be held at Venue on campus.

The society encourages those attending to wear their traditional clothes or semi-formal clothing instead.

The event offers attendees the chance to experience the artistry of henna tattoos, try some traditional treats and beverages, listen to MENA music and to meet new people.

A spokesperson for the society stated:

“As a society, we try to focus on spreading a positive outlook of the Middle East and North African region.

“We understand that there are prejudices and we strive to break those by trying to invite people to get to know not only our culture but us individually.”

As a relatively new society at the university, they said:

“We are just starting to find our ground as an established society on campus, as we approach our one year anniversary. We can confidently say that there are big things to expect from us!”

MENA makes a strong point that everyone is welcome no matter their nationality.

“Everyone is welcome to join! You don’t have to be from the region necessarily.

“In fact, our social media manager is Northern Irish but I believe that he is a prime example of someone who has been very open and willing to get to know our culture.

“Our society’s doors are open for anyone who wants to not only get a taste of the community we’ve built here but also to learn about the Middle East and Northern Africa region and what it has to offer.”

Join MENA tomorrow night and learn more about the society and the Middle East and North African culture.
