"Culture is embedded in all human beings, in our mind, body and our collective memory. Culture is defined by everything from language to music, art, food, literature, fashion, humor, love, friendship. It is the seed of a society, the web that keeps us connected, the foundation of our roots and the nature of our existence, our footprint, our mark in history. We believe that culture is shared and nobody can do it alone. It is an ideal that is generated, transmitted and developed over time. The 10th Sakia Exhibition for Cultural Services is where we gather different countries of the world for the sole purpose of giving you the opportunity to discover some of the most fascinating cultures of the world. Explore, appreciate and share." Sakia's press release of the event
