Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Bengaluru is all geared up for 'Utopia 2018'- The International Cultural Fest to be held on the 31st of July 2018 (Tuesday). The theme that underlies Utopia 2018 is 'Eclectica' which translates to 'Diversified Unity'. With the rhythm of many nations resonating across the campus, SIBM Bengaluru will be the instrument that unifies and celebrates the cultural diversity from across the globe.
Organised by the International Relations Committee of SIBM B, the event aims to bring together students from different nationalities onto one platform. Since its inception, Utopia has always acted as a medium to facilitate and strengthen the bond between the Indian and the foreign students, encouraging mutual learning and inspiration. There will also be a blood donation camp on the same day, and this year, the aim is to break the previous record of collecting 226 units of blood.
"Unity in diversity is the beauty and test of civilization." - Mahatma Gandhi
