The institution hosted cultural and creative events on this occasion. College students from 27 different nations took part in the festival.
The Associate Provost further continued that, “We seek, through the three-day event to deepen dialogue and cultural and civilisational exchange, to ensure acceptance of the other, and to promote that approach for future generations, through initiatives, practices and activities aimed at promoting the principle of tolerance and human openness that our leadership is supporting based on our strong national values and ethics.”
The festivities featured a number of competitions as well as performances by artists and folklorists from many cultures. In addition to screening student films and hosting musical events, the pupils of many nationalities also organised pavilions that highlight the cultures, traditions, and civilisations of the peoples of those nations.
