Cultural Exchanges student team 2017

The 2017 student team

Cultural eXchanges is in its sixteenth year, and is funded by De Montfort University to promote a closer relationship between the university and the city of Leicester. It is co-ordinated by staff and students from the Event and Festivals Management module of the Arts and Festivals Management degree course. Under the supervision of the teaching team, the students engage in an intensive planning process, administer and market the festival, and undertake the practical running of events. Without their hard work and commitment, Cultural eXchanges would not be possible.
