Tzedakah-Sadaqah: Culture Share Submission Registration Webform

The 2020-2021 school year has been an incredibly challenging one, but it is also incredibly unique.  We have UCalgary students calling in from all different corners of the globe and we want to learn about you!  Culture Share is designed to be a platform where UCalgary students from all around the world can share the holidays and traditions of their culture and highlight what makes them special. 

  • Do you have a favorite family recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation? 
  • Do you look forward to celebrating one special day each year? 

We want to learn about it, and we want to learn about you.  Over the next year, we will be collecting your favorite holiday recipes and video submissions of your favorite holiday traditions to learn about the amazing and diverse population of the UCalgary community.  

All the recipes collected will be turned into an “All Holiday Cookbook” and the videos will be compiled into a Cultural Celebrations video compilation.  All submissions will be showcased on the Tzedakah-Sadaqah: Culture Share webpage and students will receive a free digital copy of the cookbook and video compilation. 

You can record yourself and those around you celebrating your favorite holiday. In the recording, briefly introduce the holiday you are celebrating, the significance of the holiday in your culture, how you are celebrating it amid the COVID-19 pandemic and if the pandemic has affected how you celebrate. The recording length should be no longer than 3 minutes.
Most holidays have special food recipes and we are looking to make an ”All Holiday Cookbook” that features holiday recipes from around the world. If you or your family has a traditional recipe, please feel free to send it to us to spread the holiday spirit and to give others a chance to try authentic cuisines from around the world!
