Turkey: International Mediterranean Youth Festival "The Gypsies and the Gypsy Culture"
Akdeniz University, celebrating its 25th year, is a young and ambitious educational institution devoted to the pursuit and application of knowledge for the social, cultural, economic, scientific and technological development of our society and mankind.
In pursuit of these ideals, Akdeniz University has been the driving force behind the International Mediterranean Youth Festival since 1997.
This year we will see the tenth festival in the series, and as the festival committee we chose as this years’ festival theme “The Gypsies and the Gypsy Culture”. The festival is open to students of all kinds involved in cultural activities and events carrying the national and regional motifs of the participants (music, dance, drama, exhibitions, etc.). And of course, any motifs from The Gypsy culture will be particularly welcome.
The festival will run from the 1st to the 5th of May, 2007. I am honoured to invite you and all interested students from universities who wish to participate to apply online before 09.03.2007 viahttp://www.akdeniz.edu.tr/festival/form2007.htm, giving as much detail as possible about the nature of the event or exhibition they wish to present, and the people involved.
Accommodation, food, and transport from the airport are all provided for the guests by Akdeniz University throughout the festival.
Finally we would like to assure you that everyone is guaranteed a warm welcome and a rich and rewarding experience when they come to the Tenth Mediterranean Youth Festival at Akdeniz University.
