On 25 April 2023, H.E. Mrs. Sirilak Niyom, Ambassador of Thailand to Denmark, led a delegation of teachers from Roong Aroon School, an alternative school in Thailand, to visit Roskilde Festival Folk High School. Mr. Hans Christian Nielsen, the school's principal welcomed and guided the delegation to visit the school. According to Mr. Nielsen, the institution offers a boarding school for short-term art courses of six months for about 80 students who have graduated from high school and are about to continue university study. The courses offer 4 fields of study namely acting, music, filming and leadership aiming to give students opportunities to spend time discovering themselves and undergoing a transition from children to adults by allowing students to participate in activities of the community and in this case through participation in the “Roskilde Festival”, the largest concert event in the Nordic region and one of the biggest concert events in Europe in which there are more than one hundred thousand visitors each year.
 
The curriculum approach enables students to learn from real-life situations in organizing a big festival that challenge all areas of competence and necessitate planning, management, discussion, exchange of ideas, division of labour, division of responsibility, leadership and the creation of works of art in various festival-related fields in order to drive towards the goal. There are teachers who provide knowledge required to plan events and working with students. In addition, teachers will engage students in a daily 30-minute discussion in the bright orange room on variety of topics that will awaken students and inculcate democracy through work and 6 months of living together.
 
In Denmark there are six Folk High Schools. There is no entrance examination, but the admission will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. No prior art knowledge is necessary and there is no examination at the end of the course. Instead, a subsequent evaluation of each student's development throughout the course will be conducted. This is considered an innovation in Danish teaching and learning to develop students' potential before entering to higher education. The delegation acknowledged that this is in line with Roong Aroon School’s policies which employ a holistic education system aimed at developing students through practical learning. The delegation will use the knowledge gained to advance and further develop the education of the school.
