You are welcome to attend culture evenings „Tartu - Rich in Cultures“
Tartu is an international town with more than a thousand nice and talented people having arrived all over the world to study or work here. We warmly invite you to take part in the culture evenings where we showcase worldview, traditions, art and nature of people living in a certain country or region.
Seminars are held in Tartu Nature House (Lille 10) from October till May. First seminar takes place on 16 October, at 19-22.
The first event in the series will illustrate the vivid Indian subcontinent. The UT staff and students from India and Nepal together with UT Personnel Office and Tartu Nature House are glad to host a culture evening titled "Sanskriti" which will enlighten you about the diverse culture, traditions, festivals, ethnic wear and offer a glimpse of interesting tourist and nature locations across the country.
Snacks and Chai (Indian Tea) are offered. The event will also include „Ethnic-wear cottage” where you will get an unique opportunity to drape yourself in traditional Indian attire (sarees, dhotis, turbans) and have your photo taken. There will be also a festive corner where you can have a henna tattoo or bindi design as a memory for the evening.
Professor Ülo Valk from the Department of Estonian and Comparative Folklore at the Institute for Cultural Research and Fine Arts will say the welcoming words.
Everybody is welcome, regardless of age. Seminar will be held in English, explanations in Estonian will also be provided. The event is free for kids under the age 10 and costs 5 euros for others.
