Bridging Cultures

2 July 2024

23 JUNE- 2 JULY 2024

The Bridging Cultures UWC Short Course, hosted by UWC Mostar, aims to equip participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to bridge cultural divides and promote effective communication in diverse settings. The programme will focus on key principles of multicultural understanding and non-violent communication, providing practical tools that can be applied in various personal and professional contexts.

In order to set the foundations of multicultural understanding, we build awareness of the impact of our own culture for our identity, while acknowledging the other axes of our identity and their relationship to culture. We focus on intercultural communication on various levels, from non-violent communication as a tool useful for any individual, to skills of cooperation in diverse work settings.
We situate the topic of multicultural understanding within the context of Bosnia and Herzegovina, exploring multiculturalism in this state and focusing on peace building, but we also approach it from a large scale point of view, introducing the notion of systems of oppression, which we further explore through literature and theatre.
