For more than 2 decades, the International Students’ Association (ISA) has hosted ETHNOS, a showcase of international cultures and creativity for the ACU community, as well as the larger Abilene community. Each year in Cullen Auditorium, various acts come together to perform dances, songs, or other forms of cultural and artistic expression from countries all over the world.

This year, we invite you to join us on a journey across the world, experiencing cultural expressions including traditional dances and songs, as well as other forms of artistic expression. Tickets will be sold at the door, but keep an eye out for our ticket pre-sale!

Those interested in participating in an ACT or as a VOLUNTEER, or those simply interested in learning more about the show are encouraged to attend one of our interest meetings in September (dates and venue to be announced). Follow us on social media for more updates!
