The University of Liverpool and the Liverpool Guild of Students have created a year-long celebration of the University’s status as one of the most international institutions in the world.
Open to students and staff, the 360 Degrees Festival will run throughout 2013 and features international themed performances, exhibitions, events, and lectures that celebrate British and international cultures.
It will bring together people from all over the world in a common enjoyment of, and respect for, each other’s cultures, faiths, food and festivities.
Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Internationalisation, Professor Michael Hoey, said: “The University of Liverpool is a global university with a diverse student population. The festival is a vibrant representation of the diverse ethnicities and cultures represented on the campus and within our global networks and partnerships. It aims to embrace and celebrate the cultural diversity of our student body and help create a greater understanding and appreciation of other cultures.”
A wide-range of multicultural events will be showcased including; an asian variety show, dragon boat racing, cultural markets, exhibitions and events at the Victoria Gallery & Museum, and student society events.
Highlights for February include; a Valentines Masquerade Ball on 15 February, a Bangla poetry night on 25 February; and a spectacular celebration of the Chinese New Year in Philharmonic Hall on 27 February.
In addition, the Global Voice Society, the Christian Union and the Hindu Society are all running events throughout the month.
