One Brunel is our campaign to unite students and celebrate our cultural diversity here at Brunel.
We're lucky to home students from over 130 countries, and our diversity is something we pride ourselves on.
We beleive that students will have a much more enjoyable and impactful university experience, by making friends from across the globe and emersing themselves in other students' cultures. We therefore want to bring students from all backgrounds together, increase culture awareness and encourage cross-culture integration throughout campus.
The One Brunel campaign will include events such as the One Brunel March, Fashion Show and Culture Carnival.
One Brunel also acts as a ‘Banner’ which all of the Union's cultural events will come under, and we'll be working hard throughout the year to ensure that students from all types of backgrounds feel welcome at any cultural event, and excited to experience a taste of their fellow students' cultures.
This campaign will also give students a platform where they can showcase their culture and invite other students to share in their experience. To encourage this, we've secured funding from the University which we'll be able to fund cultural integration events organised by societies with. If you would like to organise a cultural event under the One Brunel banner, please get in touch. Events that meet the following criteria will be considered:
-The event or activity is open to all Brunel Students
-3+ societies are involved in the organisation of the event
-The event will look to engage at least 150+ students
We hope this will start to create a unity among students, and help to reduce culture segregation and racism.

ONE BRUNEL FASHION SHOW
We’re so excited for our next event which will be taking place on Wednesday 30th January 2019 at the AA building (Antonin Artaud), featuring you, our amazing diverse students!
This Fashion Show is an opportunity for all of us to represent our cultures whilst dazzling the audience, after all, fashion is a strong representation of culture and with your help, we can create an amazing display of colour and diversity.
How to get involved
We are looking for up to 3 models from each country to take to the stage and showcase their traditional clothes, giving us a taste of their culture.
Cultural societies are asked to select 3 models who they would like to represent their country. We would like at least 1 male and 1 female model, to really showcase their fashion.
Societies are asked to email International.Officer@brunel.ac.uk to confirm their models by sending their names, phone numbers and email address by
4th December 2018 5 PM.
If your country doesn’t have a society, we need YOU! If you’re interested in being a model please send your details to International.Officer@brunel.ac.uk.
All models will be finalised on 4th December 2018 without any changes, so it’s important you let us know by this date if you want to be in the show!
Whilst you’re relaxing over the break, we’ll be planning an amazing event, including singers performing, a champagne and food reception, and an epic after party. This will be an event not to miss, starting 2019 with a bang! So make sure you don’t miss out, and get ready for the the catwalk.
Anyone can be a model so don’t be shy. You’ll only be walking up the catwalk once. If you have any questions, please drop us an email or pop into the Student Union office to have a chat.
We are also looking for volunteers to help run the event, so if you would like to volunteer please email International.Officer@brunel.ac.uk.
