Saturday night cultural evenings have been a custom at International People’s College for decades. Students from a particular region or continent get a chance to present what they believe is best about their home and their cultural background. That said, we know that one region does not reflect a homogenous culture, but it is a way of reflecting upon cultural similarities. The students arrange a night with a show at our Folk High School in Denmark.
The students spent about two weeks preparing for the event. A teacher is assigned who facilitates the whole process but it is the students who are in charge of coming up with a script and defining how and what they want to portray. You will see dances, hear songs, poetry, etc. – and the most interesting part is, that you will be introduced to the hidden little treasures you cannot discover as a tourist about a region or culture.

On the 16th of February we had the first European Cultural Evening this term. This night we will visit other parts of Europe for an unforgettable night for all students and staff at IPC.
