Hello all! The time has come…Rad Music International is organizing a Cultural Event of Human Beings on Friday 9 September at 20:00-01:00 at Tsamakia Beach.
For us is a historic event with the goal to bring together all the people – refugees, locals and international volunteers – through different activities.
The event includes:
-Presentation of Traditional Food (Afghan, African, Arabic, Iranian, Greek)
-Refugees Talks 1922-2022
-Dance (Afghan, African, Greek)
– Music (Jazz Music and Rad Music International)
We aim to do the difference through all these activities, to bring people together, to have positive and creative intercultural interaction and to help refugees to be integrate into the society of Mytilene.
It is really important for us to have the testimonies of refugees used to be on Lesvos and say for our events that are the first things they did in the society of Mytilene, the first act of integration and interaction with locals in the heart of the town and out of the RIC of Moria or Mavrovouni later.
We want bring new light on the dialogue about Refugees situation and try to propose solutions for the future. The main idea is us –as human beings- to understand that a refugee can be anyone, there are no specific marks or criteria. Today can be us but unfortunately the History has shown that tomorrow can be anyone. Therefore, it is imperative how we choose to welcome those that are unfortunate, running from war or persecution.
This year we have more reasons to consider about this significant topic. It has been one hundred years since the Asian Minor Disaster (1922-2022).
