NTU Global Week

Global Week celebration took place between 25 – 29 April 2022

Global Week is a vibrant, inspiring festival showcasing our multicultural community on campus every year. Through art, dancing, sport, and food, it connects and celebrates the different cultural heritages of our students and staff and provides an opportunity for them  to extend their international outlook.

Our annual Global Week celebration is a vibrant, inspiring festival showcasing our rich cultural community and important global issues on campus. Through arts and crafts, dancing, music, sport, food, it connects and celebrates the different cultural heritages of our students and staff and provides an opportunity for them to extend their global outlook.

Join us across Clifton, Brackenhurst and City campuses and online for cultural fairs performances, workshops, information sessions and much more, delivered by our students, colleagues and some community partners.

This years Global Week  took place from the 25th - 29th of April and it consisted of both on-campus and online events across our three campuses, with a number of events, activities and workshops taking place throughout the week. More information about next years Global Week will be shared soon. In the meantime if you are interested in getting involved or have any ideas about how you can contribute, please see us in the Global Lounges (City Campus: 23 Goldsmith Street; Clifton Campus: Mary Ann Evans 126) or email us on ntugloballounge@ntu.ac.uk.

Cultural Exhibition

This usually runs in the format of cultural stalls from 11 am – 3 pm each day of Global Week in a central location on each campus (based on the dates allocated to these campuses).

The exhibition usually includes a mixture of culture-specific activities and content, a combination of more than one culture, they can be run by a society, organisation, or professional services.

Performances

Want to show off your skills and moves? Put on a performance of drama, dance, music, sport on our “global stage”. These usually take place during lunchtimes on the same days as the cultural fairs if they take place in person. You can also put on an online live performance or submit a video for our Virtual Global Week platform.

Workshops

Global Week is an opportunity to celebrate your culture through workshops.

These are varied and can involve teach fellow students and colleagues a new skill. Whether it is to play drums, pronounce words in a different language, create beautiful arts and crafts, meditate or learn a new sport, then global week is the place!

Talks, lectures and debates

Are you passionate about a topic and want to share and discuss it with other students and colleagues? Why not put on an event? This can take place in person or online.

Internationalising the curriculum 

If you’re an NTU academic colleague, then Global Week is the perfect opportunity to bring a global theme to your subject. You can bring in a global element to the module, use global case studies, or look at the subject in a global context.

Language events

Languages are a big part of culture, and thus an important part of Global Week.

As a part of Global Week, we will run our Language Café events, but would also like to run other language themed events throughout the week. These could include a taster of a specific language, calligraphy / typology, language bingo or other games. You could integrate these into your cultural exhibit, or run a separate event.

NB: Given the ongoing situation, in-person activities will be subject to the rules and regulations in place at the time (if any).
