About the Event
On 21 May, the Intercultural Dialogue Platform will launch its series of storytelling sessions for people who are curious about different cultures and histories and would like to enjoy an afternoon of storytelling. A story is a powerful and unifying tool that connects humanity, breaks down barriers and heals wounds. This idea of healing through storytelling is very common nowadays in different parts of the world. Each session will revolve around a human feeling that is universal, but at the same time experienced differently by each of us, as we are all unique and influenced by our experiences and culture. This session will focus on the theme of hope. How do we understand it? And most importantly, how can listening to other people's stories help us to overcome difficult circumstances and enrich our relationship with others?
The event is part of Inclusive Europe, a project which aims to facilitate the process of inclusion of newly arrived people in host societies by involving local communities and promoting mutual understanding between newcomers and locals. The Inclusive Europe project has a total of eight partners from six European countries: Belgium, Italy, Greece, Spain, the Netherlands and Hungary.
