Project title: Intercultural festival RefuFest 2016
Program: Program to support activities for the integration of foreigners in the territory of the Capital City of Prague for 2016
In 2016, the 11th annual RefuFest intercultural festival will take place in Prague. We decided to take this year in the style of stories. We understand it important that the topic of migration and refugees be represented in the public sphere. During the preparatory phase, we will present talented migrants involved in the implementation of the festival as well as interesting members of migrant communities living in Prague. We do not want to omit the current refugee crisis, which we would like to devote to the whole discussion afternoon. The goal of RefuFest is to achieve deeper knowledge through concrete human stories and mutual contact, which leads to increased tolerance, integration and reduced xenophobia. The festival will include: presentations of migrant communities, a discussion afternoon on the topic of the refugee crisis, music, dance and theater performances, workshops for adults and children. In addition to the actual implementation of the one-day festival, we will organize a total of 10 discussions and workshops on topics related to migration and refugees throughout the year.
