Over 350 children take part in 3rd edition of Romanian-Turkish Cultural Gala

More than 350 children and young people aged between 3 and 19 years old will be performing in a major cultural show held on today at the Bucharest-based Palace Hall, as part of the third edition of the Romanian-Turkish Cultural Gala, the organisers inform in a release. The gala, organised by the ‘Lumina’ Education Institutions Foundation, aims to promote and reinforce the bilateral relations between Romania and Turkey, bringing dances, songs, poetry and musical performances on traditional instruments from the two countries, together on the same stage.
‘By organising this event, our foundation seeks to promote the beauty of the two cultures, the friendship, common customs and bilateral traditions we have been sharing for hundreds of years. Moreover, another objective is to help our students become more self-confident and discover new skills based on which they can build up their future life path. Our goal as an education institution is to broaden the children’s horizon and help them achieve their maximum potential. Such public performance has a significant impact on a child’s psyche and can motivate him/her to reveal unexpected talents,’ the release quotes Fatih Gokta, the foundation’s managing director, as saying, Agerpres reports.
The show will be moderated by Andreea Marin and Turkish television presenter Ramazan Umit Simsek.
The Romanian-Turkish Gala is at the same time the national phase of the Turkish Language Olympics. The national finals are held simultaneously in 50 countries worldwide and the Olympiad to take place in Istanbul will bring together more than 100,000 people attending an amazing show, with an impressive artistic and technical investment. ‘Every year, we are pleasantly surprised by the Romanians’ openness to the Romanian-Turkish Cultural Gala, from students, parents, children to public institutions, private companies and media institutions, they all are ready to give a helping hand when it comes to the organisation of this event celebrating the existing friendship and cooperation between the two nations,’ Fatih Goktas said.
This year’s edition is organised with the support of the ‘Lumina’ Foundation, the University South-Eastern Europe Light, the Ministry of National Education, the Ministry of Regional Development and Tourism, the Village Museum, Children’s Palace, the Palace Hall, media partners and some companies in Romania.
