The cultural events we host are designed to offer the opportunity to get to know new people and engage with new things. Here, people make new acquaintances and exchange their ideas. All guests profit from this: It is easier for migrants and refugees to get to know and participate in the host society, but it is also easier for Germans to connect with migrants and learn more about their individual stories and cultures. This is particularly important to counteract stereotypes about each other.
