Vienna International Night Features Food, Costumes, Performances to Support Schools
Highlights included vocals performances in Polish, Ukrainian, German and Persian, and dancing from West Africa, Romania and Lebanon.

Palais Wenkheim was alive with the sounds of the international student community this week as Webster Vienna was host to its first-ever International Night.

The evening featured a buffet of foods from diverse kitchens from Austria to Egypt to West Africa, a fashion show of different traditional costumes, and performances.

Highlights included vocals performances in Polish, Ukrainian, German and Persian, and dancing from West Africa, Romania and Lebanon. The crowd joined in and joined the dancers for both dance numbers, turning the Palais Wenkheim atrium into a whirl of colours, smiles and laughter.

Donations were collected to help support schools for underprivileged children in Benin in West Africa.
