Cultural Exchanges student team 2023


Cultural eXchanges is in its 22nd year and is funded by De Montfort University to promote a closer relationship between the university and the city of Leicester. The event is co-ordinated by staff and students from the 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 event. Without their hard work and commitment, Cultural eXchanges would not be possible.
