This project brought together two groups of Muslims: Touaregs from Algeria and Moslem Palestinians from Nablus, in the Northern West Bank. Together they lead inter-religious, ethnic, and cultural dialogues with participating groups from Austria, Germany, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Portugal, and the United Kingdom. This made for interesting dialogues that lead to discoveries about the similarities and differences between their cultures. The groups all took part in discovering each other’s cultures through music, dance, and cuisine. They learned about their musical instruments, traditions, and ways of life. The discussions and workshops touched on everything from differences of language and writing style, to the standing of women in society. Participants came out of the project with a heightened sense of European cultural diversity, and an awareness of the importance of leading a life of active citizenship.
