In several tents, students will host a variety of cultural events. An outdoor stage will provide a space for artistic presentations of different cultures, including songs, dance and musical pieces played on traditional instruments.

Participants will have the pleasure to meet representatives from: Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Canada, China, Ecuador, Egypt, France, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Norway, Philippines, Poland, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine, the United States, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
