The first cross-cultural festival took place in SibMed
A cross-cultural festival “Melting pot” organized by SibMed along with the research and education medical cluster “Sibirskiy” and the federal agency for youth affairs “Rosmolodezh” united students from Russia and other countries.
The festival had several zones, such as “National cuisine”, “National holidays and festivals”, “Public lectures”, “Creative projects” and “National dress”, where students presented their culture, traditions, national food, dress and language. The festival finished with a concert in which students showed performances reflecting their national culture. The Grand Prix was awarded to the “TENGERI” voice band representing the Buryat culture and including students from different Tomsk universities.
SibMed will continue to take part in such cross-cultural events. In collaboration with other Tomsk universities, SibMed is going to develop a unified platform where international students will be able to cooperate and share experience. For example, at the closing ceremony of the Regional Forum of International Student Associations an agreement was signed on establishing an inter-university international student center.
