We Want a Korean Cultural Appreciation Society (KCAS)!
We want a Korean Cultural Appreciation Society (KCAS) for EVERYONE at USYD! :)
The University of Sydney (USYD) currently has 3 Korean societies. All 3 are mainly for Korean students. So, welack a Korean cultural appreciation society that actively seeks and welcomes non-Koreans.
Recently, the University of Sydney Union (USU) Board has decided that 3 Korean societies is enough, and is opposed to approving the establishment of any more Korean societies. We have tried merging our society into the other Korean societies before. However, it is simply NOT feasible. It did not work. The aims of each of these societies and KCAS are all conflicting with each other. Non-Koreans simply feel out of place in a completely Korean society that's mainly for Koreans.
Hence, we want to set up KCAS for everyone at USYD, including non-Koreans, to indulge in, share and celebrate the love of Korean culture and all things Korean.
And here's where you come in! We need STRONG evidence to persuade the USU Board, to change their minds, to enlighten them on the strong demand for a Korean cultural appreciation society that caters to everyone, including non-Koreans. We need YOUR support! If you have an interest in Korean culture, K-pop, K-dramas, even Korean TV programmes like Running Man (yes, we will hold Running Man events!), or anything Korean at all, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
