Faces of Diversity
Faces of Diversity is a cycle of activities designed to teach participants about cultural, ethnic, religious and social diversity, providing a springboard for reflection on prejudice and stereotypes, and thus creating a platform for intercultural dialogue. Through various initiatives, we encourage participants to look at the culture and history of Polish Jews in the wider, more universal context of constructing relationships based on the “us – them” distinction or majority-minority dynamics, and from the perspective of the coexistence of different groups. We want to demonstrate that the history and experience of Polish Jews is, or can be, like the experience of each one of us, regardless of our background. Activities organized within the framework of the program include photography, theatrical and music workshops, lectures, meetings, panel discussions, city initiatives, exhibitions, and an artist residency program.
