Guest Speaker Lenard Sciancalepore



Adelaide Talks: A Reflection on Languages and Culture


The talk will focus on the connections between languages and culture, the benefits of learning multiple languages, and how we can apply this in our everyday lives. There will be two performances as well, a Nepalese performance by Magar Samaj SA and a Colombian performance by the Chonkai Latin Folkloric Dance Group.


After a phone call to his Dad from a United Nations official, Lenard Sciancalepore's life threw him a curveball landing him into the Rotary family. A lover of travel and exploring new cultures, Lenard Sciancalepore graduated from 6 years of study with a Bachelor of Languages and a Bachelor of International Development at The University of Adelaide to better appreciate global diversity of the world we live in, and make a tangible difference in the lives of others. Lenard is heavily involved in the multicultural space as a board member of the Multicultural Communities Council of South Australia and the key organiser of the state’s largest youth led multicultural festival and charity fundraiser, Cultural Night. Having been passionately involved with the Adelaide University Rotaract Club for six years, and as the current District Rotaract Secretary for District 9510, Lenard's experience with Rotaract and Rotary has opened up vast new horizons, affording him the opportunity to grow, learn, and develop as an empowered global citizen.

Chonkai Group

Chonkai, from the Wayuu indigenous language word, means "son of the sun". We are a Latin American Folkloric dance group, showing a taste of Colombia's and Latin America's traditional dances to Australia.

Magar Samaj SA

Magars are one of Nepal’s 59 indigenous peoples. Magars are a very new migrant community to Australia with approximately 200 people of Magar ethnicity living in Adelaide. The Magar community came together in 2018 to form the association 'Magar Samaj South Australia' whose objectives include to protect, promote and preserve the culture, traditions, rites and rituals and other relevant religious, social and cultural heritages relating to Magar people.
