BOP Soc aims to:
– Provide a culturally mixed space on campus.
– Showcase the musical, artistic and culinary talents of people of colour and culture in Leeds.
– Inspire and create diversity amongst students.
Why is this needed?
There are many societies at The University of Leeds, but none aim to provide as diverse a community as we do. As much as we love our cultures individually, we feel we are better together and we love learning from our friends from different backgrounds.
Our members are from a range of different fields and have a wide range of talents, we provide a stage and platform for them to shine.
What does this mean?
As we have such a high degree of diversity amongst our members, some members are interested in our more creative events, such as art nights and others come for our cultural events such our ‘wear your culture’ event.
However, as long as you like to meet interesting people – we’ll have something for you. we plan to not just provide a space for individuals to learn about different cultures, but also provide a safe and fun environment for individuals to make new friends and in turn learn about different cultures through them.
