“INTERNATIONAL OCEAN – ŠKIS FAIR 2016”
Would you like to be a part of the biggest one day youth event in Slovenia – “Škisova tržnica” (ŠKIS fair)? Dive into the International Ocean with us!
Within Škisova tržnica, we are organizing the International Ocean, where you can present your country through culinary specialties, culture and other interesting facts from your local environment.
Škisova tržnica is one of the most known one-day events for youth in Slovenia. This year it is expected to be the best and the biggest ever with more than 20.000 visitors. In the afternoon, you will find out where the name of the event came from. There are food stands everywhere as every student club in Slovenia has its own, with unique culinary specialities from their local environment. They are grouped into 6 sections, each representing one region in Slovenia.
But how can it be 6 sections, you may wonder, when there’s 7 colours in the rainbow? This is where you step in! The magic 7th section is the International Ocean, which adds an international touch to Škisova tržnica! Much of the Ocean’s depths remain unexplored and we hope you will help us out by representing your own country. We want to dive into your culture and cuisine and put your country on the map of Škisova tržnica.
The Ocean is represented by 20 stalls and is dedicated to international activities: volunteers, trainees and students on exchange from different countries, who are currently in Slovenia, Slovenians living in Austria, Italy and Hungary and minorities living in Slovenia represent their countries through culture, cuisine, traditional customs and music. An important part of the International Ocean are also organizations in Slovenia, which are engaged in the promotion of international mobility for young people.
The event will be held on 5th May 2016 in Bežigrad, Ljubljana. The afternoon program, part of which is the International Ocean, attracts 8,000 visitors from different age groups, mostly young people between 18 and 30 years.
The International Ocean is organized by the International Board of ŠKIS Association. We would be more than happy to make you a part of the event.
Head of the International board of ŠKIS Association
