When the world needs us to sit together, listen and connect
In addition to the Circles, “We have the choice” also develops other kinds of educational, sensitizing and public-oriented activities, rituals and collaborations to support the overarching mission and goals. These activities focus on social, cultural, creative, therapeutic or meditative aspects, or on mediation and restorative justice. These activities are managed in-house, on behalf of or in partnership with other organizations, governments or services.
The focus will be on vulnerable target groups, such as young people in multicultural communities. More than anyone else, they are faced with the intransigence of society, polarization racism and extremism, and they have a need to come together to engage in dialogue and connection….
In addition, we will continue our collaboration with organizations from the Muslim communities to organize intercultural Circles during Ramadan.
In March, a book is published by Lannoo (in Dutch and French) with photos made by Johan Van Steen and poems by Kristin Verellen. Parallel to this, the first Johan Van Steen Photography Award will be given. It is an initiative of the Brussels School Group.
