Mishwar Al-Alam “Cross Cultures”

Mishwar Al-Alam “Cross Cultures”

JCI Lattakia, Syria

Due to the lack of communication between Syrian youth and people around the world as a result of the cultural siege and the presence of many foreign communities in Syria, JCI Lattakia felt compelled to build bridges between Syrian youth and other nationalities. JCI Lattakia reached out to community and civil society organizations representing different cultures and invited them to participate in Mishwar Al-Alam, or “Cross Cultures.” This successful event drew packed crows who came to experience the traditional dress, dancing, arts and food cultures throughout Europe, Africa and Asia.
