Every year at this time the University of the Free State celebrates Kosvie Mosaic Day. On Wednesday the October 15ht the Red Square on Main Campus was a hive of colour as would be artists spread their easels and turned palettes into vibrant images. Historically the day has been used to reflect on the rich cultural diversity of the campus.
The newly elected Student Representative Council’s Culture Portfolio head, Stephan West and his executive committee members were responsible for organising the event.
We enjoyed a range of artistic activities including poetry, spoken word performances, painting and singing. We like to think that hidden talent is unearthed each year.
The highlight of the day for the students who reside in the various hostels – divided into a college system – was the challenge of depicting the Main Building.
