Why the Cultural Week?
This cultural week has many different reasons:
We, the African students realize that it is necessary to deal with students of other Austrian universities (domestic and foreign) exchange of our social and cultural integration into our environment and into Austrian society easier. The more we have contacts with other students, the better our integration.
Get to know and interact with other people.
Build a good friendly and cooperative relationship with other Austrian students. Because only through direct dialogue across boundaries of prejudice reduction and a mutual understanding is possible.
On the other hand, we also want to:
make a contribution to the promotion of cultural diversity in Austria.
show the people that we exist and that we are a part of Austrian society.
