The festival has been organized by students from the International Integration Group and the Student Government. The goal of the event is to provide common space for people from different countries and cultures, to share their experiences and discuss vital issues related to functioning in a multicultural society. Most importantly, we would like to empower everyone and to recognize and celebrate the richness of the cultural diversity. The event is coordinated by the Office of International Student and Scholar Services.

Various Countries, Various People, One University

The courtyard of our Warsaw Campus will be transformed into a space where cultural performances and booths with culinary delicacies from around the world will reflect the essence of diversity present at SWPS University and in Warsaw. Students, representing over 20 nationalities, will show key elements of their cultures and their home countries. 

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. Our International Village will provide the nourishment not only for the soul, but also for the body. Visitors will be tempted to try traditional dishes and regional specialties from various regions.

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.
