Multi Kulti Collective is the national partner in the international project Celebrating Solidarity. It aims to explore, stimulate debate and advance solidarity and philanthropy as crucial topics within European societies.
The project gathers CSOs from 6 European counties – 3 EU member states (Hungary, Bulgaria and Poland) and 3 Balkans countries (Serbia, Macedonia and Albania). They all have long and turbulent history of facing crisis, both man-made (political, social, armed conflicts, etc), as well as the natural disasters (such as earthquakes, floods, etc). The project explores the variety of turbulent times those counties and their citizens were/are facing, while celebrating and understanding the importance of solidarity and love to other human being in a word of conflicts and disasters.
