Festival To Showcase World Cultures

Share the News
Papua New Guinea will host the first ever Global Village Festival by the PNG National Commission for UNESCO, in May this year. This was announced by Governor General Sir Michael Ogio, and witnessed by PNG UNESCO officials, stakeholders and the media.

Papua New Guinea has 800 plus cultural and linguistic groups that sets the country apart from nations around the world. This has created attraction for tourists, business partners and foreign governments.


However little has been done to create public awareness for other cultures of the world to showcase locally.


When making the announcement, Governor General Sir Michael Ogio said the festival is an avenue where PNG will learn a lot from other cultures of the world. He says this is a step forward to breakdown the cultural interaction PNG has been lacking in the past 25 years.


UNESCO Secretary General Yori Yei said PNG is delighted to host this international event. Mr Yei said the 3 day event will feature exhibitions, performances, food and an international ball night.


Events will be staged in different parts of the city.
