Multiculturalism in Iceland’s southwestern region will be celebrated for the fourth year in a row with intercultural programs this Saturday and next, on May 5 in Reykjanesbær and May 12 in Reykjavík.
Tomorrow’s program takes place in Duushús in Keflavík, starting at 2 pm with a concert by three of the local music school’s students and accordion teacher German Khlopin. More music, lectures, presentations and treats from various countries will follow.
In Reykjavík the following Saturday, the program begins at 1 pm with a march from Hallgrímskirkja church down Skólavörðustígur and to the City Hall.
