The University of Central Asia (UCA) organised the “Festival of Togetherness” on its campus in Khorog, Tajikistan, recently. Badakhshan TV produced a special news report in Tajiki language highlighting the salient features of the festival.
The festival is one of UCA students’ initiatives and its objective is to showcase the cultures, traditions and values of different nations, and to encourage people to learn different languages, explained Munira Malakbozova, an undergraduate student of UCA and one of the organisers of the event.
“Outside of our studies, UCA students have an active social life in Khorog, and regularly organise cultural events,” she said.
The event featured pavilions of different countries, showcasing their art, culture and handicrafts as well as performances by members of the UCA, Khorog and international communities.
UCA’s student-led Diversity Club at the Khorog campus organised the festival with the aim of spreading diversity and pluralism.
