As much as we want to think that it is easy to get along with everyone, we can’t ignore that there are still some cultural differences that all of us face every day in our cities around the world. Our Social Cities One Wall – One Love series this October titled ‘Colors of my home‘ is dedicated to the people living in a multi culture housing complex in Berlin. Inhabitants and neighbours are dealing with the sometimes challenging aspects of understanding different customs all under one roof.
This is not always easy as we all know. Not only but often mostly language barriers are what gets in the way of mutual understanding and is what breeds fear or misconceptions.
However, there is always one language that we all understand: ART. Communication within and through images, objects and colors.
With the strong and ongoing support of these artists:
…we are aiming to help offer the opportunity to encourage connection for those living in these houses and hope for more communication especially amongst the kids in the house. All artwork is based on the idea of cultural freedom, positive curiosity towards things that may appear ‘different‘ and lots and lots of laughs and fun!!!
