How is a culture born, and how does it develop?
How do we acquire cultural patterns – does it happen spontaneously, or is it forced upon us?
Is it possible to divide cultures by their nationalities, or can they go beyond borders and then become parts of regional or global cultures?
Is it even possible to mark borders on one culture– or does it walk freely nevertheless?
By asking these questions, we celebrate the World Refugee Day, and invite all of you to join us at the afternoon gathering in the Dorćol Platz yard, from 4 to 7 PM, with the leitmotiv:
English: Culture Travels on Foot
Serbian: Kultura se prenosi peške
Farsi: فرهنگراباراه رفتنانتقالمیدهند
Before you join us at the event, here’s something to think about: how many local songs are actually originally from your country? Maybe you have had the chance to hear them in a different language as well? What does it mean?
We would like to believe that culture goes beyond borders; it starts and paves its way spontaneously, on its own, by word of mouth and through people’s footsteps, and is being exchanged this way.
This precise travel of culture is what we want to celebrate by getting together, along with nibbles, singing, dancing and socializing! We will be munching on delicious food, listen to the music that makes us move, participate in a music workshop about songs that cross barriers easily, and spend the afternoon in getting to know the similarities of different cultures.
You will have the chance to experience the following activities:
- Two maps waiting for you to draw in your own path – both the physical and the spiritual
- Open intercultural workshop on songs that are also migrants in their own way
- Chill guitar sounds and music that moves
- New friends, new languages and new cultures you can explore
How does it all fit in one day?
This is the program:
4:00 │Opening ceremony
4:15 │Filling out the maps, socializing with drinks, food, and the sounds of the guitar
4:45 │Open intercultural workshop – presenting songs that have made their ways, on
foot, to different cultures
6:00 │Viewing of the animated movie «Fairytale»
See you in Dorćol Platz on Friday!
