Bridging Cultures, Bosnia & Herzegovina
27 June - 4 July
Bridging cultures short course approaches the topic of multicultural understanding from the perspectives of various disciplines: anthropology, international relations, arts and literature, psychology, and others. In order to set the foundations of multicultural understanding.
This understanding is developed within the context of Bosnia and Herzegovina, exploring multiculturalism within this area focusing on peacebuilding. We also broaden out the context, introducing the notion of systems of oppression, which we further explore through literature and theatre. Finally, we wrap up the course with a focus on social activism in order to equip our participants with the tools necessary to act within their home communities.
The course will be carried through an experiential learning approach that encourages engagement, action and reflection rather than just observation and listening. A group of facilitators, but also guest speakers representing a range of local NGOs, will deliver workshops and activities.
