Project Belonging : giving a face and a voice to a statistic

by Tanuja Thurairajah and P. Vijayashanthan

ZÜRICH
 

Project Belonging

 
 
This project shares personal stories and anecdotes of people who would otherwise be categorised as a generic migrant community. A glimpse into the lives of these people can break down stereotypes and facilitate co-existence with not only the host community but also with other migrant communities. The project also hopes to enable a deeper understanding within the Sri Lankan diaspora particularly as a reconciliatory step towards bringing the Sinhalese, Tamil and Muslim populations together.
 
The screening today April 1, 2012 will be especially for Tamil-speaking people with a discussion on ‘Culture & Integration’ by Ambalam Kannan, Social Activist and P. Vijayashanthan, Theatre Activist at 18.30 pm at the Maxim Theatre Zeughaus 5, Zeughausstrasse 60, 8004 Zürich.
 
Screenings in Zurich supported by the Integration Fund of Kanton Zürich.

More on Tanuja’s story as well as the wonderful work she and her husband Vijay are doing in Zürich will be featured on iSrilankan in the coming weeks.
