Go Global, the Union’s annual festival of culture and diversity, runs from 19-27 February 2011. In conjunction with the Cardiff Guild of Societies and the international student community, the Union will be hosting more than 35 events, including music from around the world, art workshops, taster sessions and debates on international issues.
One of the highlights of the week will be Global Village which takes place on 27 February. As well as introducing visitors to food from more than 20 countries, this event will also showcase some of the University’s talented students, with performances including Bollywood, Chinese dancing and singing, a masquerade, break dancing, an international fashion show and many others.
Cosimo Montagu, the Union’s Societies, Events and Activities Officer, said: "Thousands of students get involved with Go Global each year. It is an excellent way to present the identity and strength of culture of our student body to the University and to the wider community in Cardiff."
Cardiff has a long-established tradition of welcoming students from overseas. There are currently more than 3000 international students studying at the University, representing over 100 countries.
