2012 AFSTRI Cultural Night

As part of the celebrations for the 50th year of scholarship in IRRI, the Association of Fellows, Scholars, Trainees, and Residents in IRRI (AFSTRI) held its annual Cultural Night during the same week as the IRRI Young Scientists' Conference.

The Cultural Night was, indeed, a welcome break from all the science talk. Nurul, one of the hosts for the event, mentioned that this year's Cultural Night was all about the peak of the "art-genes" expression.  For the next two hours, young scientists showed that they're not just scientists, they're artists as well. 

Proof? Here's proof. :)

The Gangnam bug has infected the audience by the time the Cultural Night came to a close thanks to the Korean students who gave the most rousing performances of the night.
