Country of Colours: a South Africa-inspired creative workshop on diversity
Ce ?
South Africa has become popularly known as “the rainbow nation” because of its vast array of cultures, eleven official languages (unofficially, there are even more) and the resulting vibrant collection of colours, tastes, customs, sounds and identities. Also, given the country's history of Apartheid and racial discrimination, understanding and embracing diversity is a vital and constant concern. Inspired by South Africa, this workshop highlights the theme of diversity through story-telling, sound and creative expression.

In the workshop we will:
explore multicultural exchange and dialogue across (social, cultural, geographical, linguistic) borders;
reflect on what it means to be the Other, and to encounter or welcome the strange(r);
celebrate the differences that enrich us and the similarities that connect us.
