The welcome party was a successful and unexpectedly well attended event. The party was initiated with a flea market. Leaflets with lists of upcoming events were distributed and explained to the people. Two posters were used to encourage attendants to share some information about their countries of origin and customs of greetings. This triggered friendly conversations between strangers from all over the world. The interaction slowly picked up as more people joined in and the party started on its full swing. A great attraction of the party was the delicious international food prepared and served by the Culinar Culture team. The party went on until the late hours of the night as people chatted, ate, drank and danced. We thank all the organizers and collaborators for their hard work that made this event an unforgettable experience.
