Uniting students through arts and culture at the Namibia Students Cultural Exchange.
An event aimed at uniting tertiary students through their heritage and arts will be hosted next month at the Sam Nujoma Stadium. The whole idea behind this initiative is to educate and train students on different cultures around the world and bring unity among tribes and stop tribalism.
“It will educate and prepare the student with entrepreneurship skills so that they become self-employed one day and create job opportunity in the Namibian job market and contribute to the economic growth of our country. We believe that students must practice cultural sensitivity and also respect one another’s cultures. Also, we believe that hosting this festival every year will help teach students to function in a culture which has not one clear identity ready for them and it will make it easier for students once they graduate to work with people from different cultural backgrounds,” says Sandro Ithana an organizer.
The activities include fashion shows, game night, performances from various cultural groups and poetry just to mention a few.
