One World has been quite of a turnaround in the face of culture and heritage across the globe, right? It is a three-day long event conducted for the AIU’s second International Youth Festival, making quite a celebration out here too!
If you haven’t read the article on art exhibitions by the Department of Fine Arts, go and read it now, then continue with this article to explore the various countries being represented and the portrayal of their diversified culture. This introduces us to a series of posts covering countries around the world.
Let’s explore some of the African countries portrayed (though there would be more, I would cover them in another article).
A country belonging to North-East Africa known for its large coastline and closeness to the Red Sea has been demonstrated by the School of Education this time. They have essentially shown the history of Sudan including various artifacts and posters for the same.
They also showed the Nubian pyramids of the Nile Valley which are close to 200. Not covering it here, but the School of Polytechnic has portrayed South Sudan and it was pretty wonderful too!
The Democratic Republic of Congo formerly called Zaire, a part of the Central Africa region has been represented by the Mittal School of Business (MSB). They have portrayed the endangered species of mountain gorilla found here as their main entrance with huge paintings of forests and animals depicting their rich wildlife.
You can see a brilliant model created out of chart papers showing a colony or a block and a 3-D model of mountains that cut the ground from our feet. We could also see large paintings, maps, and descriptions written at each place providing us with more information about the country (Rooting for them!).
It belongs to West Africa on the Gulf of Guinea officially the Republic of Niger, depicted by the School of Civil Engineering.
It welcomed us with several illustrations on the outside as well as the inside, which was more outlined with structures and lamp holders making them the main point of attraction and allowing us to learn more about the specific cultures and heritage of the country.
The next country in this series is going to be Zambia, a country in South Africa known for its wildlife and forestry. It was represented by the School of Physical Education which portrayed the map of Zambia at the front, giving us a good idea about what’s going to be inside.
On the inside, we can see a good attempt to depict the wildlife of the place with statues of various wildlife animals including zebra, elephant, etc.
I hope you all have had a good look! Will continue the remaining African countries in the next post. Stay tuned!
