The Goethe Institut, one of the most important cultural catalysts in Germany and worldwide, hosted a series of events under the title Damascus in exile, by opening a symbolic place for cultural encounters in Berlin from the 20th of October to the 5th of November. The BoP-Ambassador Halah Al-Hayik, Prof. Dr. Gernot Wolfram and Dr. Patrick S. Föhl created a workshop to debate the current and future challenges of Syrian and German artists, cultural managers and workers. The group, formed by performers, theater artists, intercultural experts, culture managements and actors, discussed about relevant topics such as empowerment and participation; peace education and cultural mediation. A synergic cooperation would be needed in order to improve the “culture in exile”, by also exploiting the existing infrastructure and platforms; to reach this goal, an intercultural dialogue should be fostered by connecting the different stakeholders.
