Culture carnival celebrated at Liverpool HopeMonday 23 March 2015
Countries from across the world were represented at the 2015 Liverpool Hope Culture Carnival.
After the carnival was officially opened by Professor Pillay, staff and students were invited to visit tables hosted by international students representing their countries. Many wore national dress and offered authentic foods and crafts from their home country.
Countries including Nepal, Bangladesh, India, Kurdistan, Uzbekistan, USA and Nigeria were represented, and the event also included a variety of musical performances.
The carnival also saw the launch of Fountain of Hope, a book of essays written by international students detailing their funny, exciting and often moving experiences of studying in the UK. Professor Pillay presented prizes and certificates to those who had shared their stories.
Carol Crawford, International Student Support Manager said: “The International Culture Carnival was a joyous fusion of cultures, with tables showcasing the history, crafts and traditions of the many different countries that make Liverpool Hope what it is. We would like to thank all the participants for taking part and making the event a success.”
