is the essential rule for universal peace. Through dialogue among people,
communities, and nations, prejudice and fear will be replaced by peace and
The International Festival of Language and
Culture, IFLC, approaches today’s youth as the architects of our future. We
must nurture these builders with universal values and an awareness of peace.
Until 2014, Turkey was the festival’s epicenter. That year, for the first time,
students from 140 countries performed their diverse skills and showcased their
unique cultures on different continents.
2014 marked a new direction for the organization
and the festival. What had always been an innately international event became
decentralized to embrace the whole planet.
Each event around the world is a feast of
entertainment and a great opportunity for the youth to display musical skills,
traditional dances, and performances of all sorts.
Cultural encounters and dialogue help students
overcome mental barriers; the energy of these young men and women strengthens
hopes for global peace.
Although these performances and contests are an
integral part of the International Festival of Language and Culture, what makes
it a genuine cultural Olympiad is its underlying spirit. These young men and
women, who represent the best their country has to offer, meet peers from other
cultures and countries – some of which they might not even be able to find on a
map! Such an encounter is a priceless experience for many young students, and
will expand their worldview and help them adopt universal values of respect and
The festival is also a unique experience for
spectators. Even those who have traveled widely are likely to see something
they’ve never seen before! As the tour of visiting country’s cultural
exhibitions, it would be as if they have traveled the world in just a few days.
Though the International Festival of Language
and Culture features songs, poems, local dances, and stage performances that
capture age-old traditions.
Music is a universal language stretching across
cultures, and even as it highlights our differences, it brings us closer
together. There will also be cultural treasures, local tastes, and traditional
clothing on exhibition for visitors.
Modern technology and transportation have
shortened distances more than ever, but these alone cannot consolidate
friendships and peace. Nothing can replicate the warmth and sincerity of a
heartfelt greeting, smile, and embrace.
Meeting others…Laughing and joking…Singing
together...Sharing the same space and breathing the same air...This is how love
and fellowship flourish. We are sowing a seed of friendship and peace for our
children – and "their” children.
The International Festival of Language and
Culture is the name of that seed. Uniting all colors of the world, singing the
universal song of all humanity for the last thirteen years.
