Cross-Cultural Exhibition

The Cross-cultural Exhibition aims to showcase different culture to promote intercultural understanding and encourage intercultural dialogue. The programme provides a platform to motivate students to understand different cultures.  The students will then transfer what they understood into peace messages and expressions and capture them in video or photographs. By understanding different cultures from the program, students can develop empathy, learn to be more acceptable of others, understand the divergence of the nations, appreciate the value of festivals and other rituals and their roles in individual culture.  

Participants shall deliver a peace message to the world through videos, photos and animations. Throughout the program, students will know what SDG goals are, and importance of peace. 

Students are encouraged to develop appreciation of what they have, and learn to help others as peace ambassadors.
