    Be My Mirror

    European Union is expanding. As it expands , it’s important for all countries involved to become aware of each other’s identity and diversity while learning what makes each individual country unique. Local and national culture is the root of this uniqueness and central to national identity. Sharing knowledge of each nations’ culture fosters understanding and tolerance between partner countries. Our most important aim is to create awareness of the cultural heritage with the help of traditional customs of the eight partner countries. This comparison and analysis of cultural heritage via traditional customs will be of great interest to the students of all participating countries. The students will explore aspects of the other's cultural heritage including festivals, ceremonies, traditional folk dances, traditional clothes, regional dish and traditional songs. Our aim is to view our cultural heritage from other's point of view. Each partner will work on another partner determined by draw . This country will focus on the other county's festivals, ceremonies, traditional folk dances, traditional clothes , regional dish and traditional songs. Thus, one will be the other's mirror. In this way, the project will provide the presenter students to learn the other country's culture by experience and for the viewer it'll be entertaining. Our “Be My Mirror” project represents the continuous linking of past, present and future from other's point of view
