For us, diaspora dialogues means an intercultural bridge. In this city with the highest percentage in the world of residents born somewhere else, we use art and ideas to explore questions of our connected humanity expressed through its varying cultural contexts and particular situations.

Diaspora Dialogues Programming

For us, diaspora dialogues means an intercultural bridge. In this city with the highest percentage in the world of residents born somewhere else, where each year more than a hundred thousand newcomers settle beside those whose families arrived a year, a decade, a century or a millennium ago, we use art and ideas to explore questions of our connected humanity expressed through its varying cultural contexts and particular situations.

We consider our community to be the mainstream. We work with partners who agree that such a fully inclusive arts sector is not the goal in and of itself, but the foundation on which we together build a vibrant, dynamic and sophisticated global city.

At Diaspora Dialogues we have two core program streams: Our Mentoring Programs, and Events Series. In addition to these core streams, we occasionally produce Special Projects.
