Update: due to the current coronavirus outbreak in the Faroe Islands, the Intercultural Theme Day will not be held as an in-person event. More information to come.

Since 2018, the Red Cross has hosted an intercultural event called Intercultural Family Retreat. This event will be a bit different in 2020, in order to conform to corona regulations. Instead of the usual weekend retreat, it will be a one-day event hosted in Norðurlandahúsið in Tórshavn.

The event will take place in Norðurlandahúsið on Sunday 27 September 2020.

The program for the day includes interesting talks and workshops for adults, fun activities for kids and musical performances.

The price for the day is DKK 250 per family, and includes all meals.

Stay tuned for the program, which will be available soon.
