Video: Mind the Gap Stories

On 20 June 2018, World Refugee Day, the National Museums of World Culture in Sweden has launched the stories filmed in the framework of the Tandem Europe project #MindTheGap.

We humanize what is going on in the world and in ourselves only by speaking of it, and in the course of speaking of it we learn to be human.

Hannah Arendt

Since ancient times, people have been telling each other stories. Throughout the world and in all cultures, storytelling has been the preferred medium for conveying knowledge, experience and values. By telling, you can get an understanding both for yourself and for others, and it gives meaning and context to our experiences.

MIND THE GAP is a creative project that aims at creating an intercultural dialogue platform to promote active citizenship and reduce gaps in our daily life. We bring together local community and newcomers to Sweden.
