All Cultures Day at the School of Psychology
On December 21st “Applied Social Psychology” master’s program organized the 4th yearly All Cultures Day at the School of Psychology. International students from many faculties and schools, including Preparatory year students gathered to celebrate HSE’s multicultural environment and the Russian New Year.
This year’s celebration started with a bang – one of the program’s students, Maria Zhuravleva, invited her choir to take part in the cultural program. Chamber Choir “Pokroff”, being a professional ensemble of singers, is regularly touring Russia and Europe. At the All Cultures Day they performed German, Spanish, French, Russian and Ukrainian Christmas carols, captivating the audience with its cathedral-worthy sound.
During the break everyone had a chance to chat with each other, have fun with group photos and try some Russian and ethnic food brought by the guests. There were Slovak sweets, Ghanaian fufu with chicken sauce, Singapore durian cookies, lots of Russian pierogi etc. In the meantime, Vanessa Vormittag at the Germany stand organized a quiz about the German culture.
