Mind the Gap

A creative program launched by the National Museum of World Culture in Sweden to promote a culture of intercultural dialogue, pluralism and freedom of expression through storytelling. In addition to storytelling, we use theater and other forms of art to express the gaps in our lives. We always try to answer a question: Why was all of this?

Through Mind the Gap programme, we aim at creating an intercultural dialogue space for people from different cultural backgrounds to promote active citizenship and reflect on gaps in our daily life.

We presented 3 Storytelling and Singing shows in Alexandria in 2020 in cooperation with ElMadina Arts
