Songs of my Neighbours is a collaborative initiative aiming to use the arts, and theatre in particular, to encourage dialogue and social justice between communities that share conflict.
Songs of my Neighbours was conceived out of the need for social dialogue between communities. Recognizing the stale-mate in the resolution of conflicts, due to political unwillingness or inability, the prevalence of xenophobia and intolerance to diversity, the project envisages to disrupt the inertia in inter-cultural communication.
It offers a new practical way to enhance intercultural listening and acceptance: Listening deeply, with empathy, at my Other’s stories and songs. The project aims to work on the complex issues of cohabitation and migration in multicultural societies, as well as promote cooperation and ethnic and religious tolerance between communities.
