Yet another destination : Galle marks the trinity for Future Minds
2012 saw Future Minds add yet another destination to its impressive portfolio of venues. Galle, the hub of southern Sri Lanka thus became the third venue for Future Minds. Galle is the newest addition to the destinations of Future Minds following Colombo and Kandy. Among the factors that prompted an exposition of Future Minds in Galle, was the high performance of students of the south in Galle and neighbouring cities in the ordinary and advanced level examinations.
