Learning the ‘Other’

The objective of the project was to foster an understanding between cultures and people through the mobilization and active participation of youth in society. A series of lectures were organized entitled Our ‘Distant’ Neighbours: An Economic, Social and Cultural Approach to topics such as post-colonialism and migration. The project participated in major events, including the Fifteenth Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean 2011 (Thessaloniki, Rome, Casablanca), whereby Symbiosis offered a painting workshop for youth from diverse backgrounds. Moreover, workshops were given on how organizations and communities could effectively work with the media to facilitate their work and help combat discrimination.
