On Friday, November 8, 2013, join us for the inauguration of a three-year cycle of activities devoted to the multiculturalism of Warsaw.
Representatives of various Warsaw organizations and institutions will talk about their projects related to intercultural dialogue. We will see different examples of activities, including a web portal, educational, sports and music projects or the creation of a Warsaw center for multiculturalism. We will also have an opportunity to learn about the different perspectives taken by organizations, and reflect on topics such as: How to talk about multiculturalism? How to avoid being conventional when talking about cultural co-existence? How to run intercultural projects without excluding minorities? We invite intercultural activists, animators and researchers to share their views, as well as all those for whom the co-existence of different cultures, groups and communities in society is an important issue.
Discussion participants will include: Mamadou Diouf (Founder of the Afryka Another Way Foundation), Zuzanna Dłużniewska (Editor of the website Continent Warsaw – Warsaw of Many Cultures website), Krzysztof Jarymowicz (Head of the Fundacja Dla Wolności), Jakub Petelewicz (Educational Director at the Forum for Dialogue among Nations) and Magdalena Wojno (Member of the Social Dialogue Commission on Foreigners, City of Warsaw).
