Spirit of Peace was delighted to launch the first Arts at the Intersection Open House event in partnership with Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees, Sevenoaks Unitarians, Unity Music and Art for Health. The event was originally planned to take place in Sevenoaks to bring different cultures within the community.
Due to Covid-19, we produced an online event, which also enabled people from across the UK and abroad to attend. The warmth and connection participants experienced during the event was stunning. The feedback we have received encourages us to continue, for example:
“A very inspirational integration of cultural sharing and understanding. I enjoyed it all. The musical instruments echoing back and forth, the poetry, the art, the language, the cook book, stories … sharing … and the room shares. Lovely blend of cultures merging. Thank you.” (Open House Participant)
“What a precious afternoon. Thank you for hosting us all and putting together such an interesting program. Seeing and meeting the Syrians, hearing Syrian music…even listening to Arabic, my first time ever to hear that language, all, were so special to me.” (Open House Participant)
