International Student Week in Timisoara (ISWinT) 2011

ISWinT team is proud to announce that preparations for this year’s festival, which will take place between the 18th and 27th of July, are in full swing. ISWinT (International Student Week in Timisoara, Romania) is an international festival that gathers participants from all over the world each year since 1994. The purpose of this festival is to give the students from different countries the opportunity to communicate freely, to express their opinions in a productive manner, while enjoying a taste of our local culture. The theme for this summer is “Celebrate Innovation. Keep Tradition”. The reason behind this particular choice of words is to emphasize the antithesis that appears between tradition and innovation, two sides of a continuously flipping coin.

During the 10 days of festival the participants have the opportunity to make new friends, discover the Romanian culture, discuss and express their opinions during the workshops or while attending the conferences. As a means to relax and have fun, they get to attend parties, themed evenings, or afternoons dedicated to recreational activities, such as games, sports, or simply escape into the tranquility of nature. Romania's beautiful landscapes are revealed during the two-day trip when we will visit the surroundings of Timisoara. 

The festival program is composed of 13 different workshops and a number of cultural events and study trips.

There is a 100 euro participation fee that will cover accommodation, food (3 meals/day), free entrance to parties and all the places we will visit, the costs for the trip in the surroundings of Timisoara, transportation around the city during the festival and materials for the workshops. The 100 euro fee does not include travel expenses to and from Timisoara and visa costs.
