Fourth Intercultural Morning Coffee focused on the importance of art and intercultural dialogue to the Covid-19 recovery

Intercultural Morning Coffee with Rham Bahi

The Anna Lindh Foundation is organizing a series of meetings called the Intercultural Morning Coffee which brings together researchers, journalists, and civil society to discuss up-to-date issues over a cup of coffee in the morning. The get-together is set out to be casual with fewer people than for example the Intercultural Trends & Media Platform Virtual Exchanges.  

The Fourth morning coffee on the 12th of May, from 09:30 CET to 10:00 CET focused on how culture and art can promote living together in diverse societies, which is a particularly timely topic since a growing number of countries in the Euro-Mediterranean are easing restrictions, which means that people will soon be able to attend public events and cultural festivities.

The session started with a brief presentation by Riham Bahi, Associate Professor of international relations at the Faculty of Economics and Political Science, Cairo University. Bahi is a contributor to the fourth edition of the Anna Lindh Intercultural Trends Report, which will be published this summer.

For the report, Bahi has explored the importance of art and intercultural dialogue to the Covid-19 recovery.
