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.”
