Meeting Days, Workshops and Masterclasses and the Video Channel
In organizing and documenting living encounters, the QFWF focuses on social issues, such as issues about the multicultural society and the shift towards an inter- and transcultural world order.
With this, the QFWF aims that the (documented) Meeting Days and Masterclasses and Workshops are inspiring examples of the way in which intercultural art of living contributes to encounters and connections between cultures. The QFWF video channel includes video reports of masterclasses and meetings/ encounters ontmoetingen.
QFWF Meeting Days
Every year, the QFWF organizes an Encounter Day, in which a social theme is central and is examined through artistic and spiritual expressions and in dialogue as a question of intercultural art of living.
