Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to expand our network via art. We are inspired to raise our voices for peace and understanding and to widen our cooperation further between the diverse cultures and religions. To encourage people to create a peaceful society locally and globally without any discrimination.

Our members are from different countries of Central Asia, all of whom currently live in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. Our main focus is to promote a dialogue of cultures. We have organized various seminars, roundtables and concerts, as well as an International Peace Day celebration, under the direction of the Ziyadullo Shahidi International Foundation with the partnership of the UN Tajikistan Peace-Building Office. More than 1500 participants attended including representatives of different faiths present in Dushanbe. A seminar "Dialogue of Religions for the Culture of Peace" was held at the Slavic University of Dushanbe. Speeches about Islamic tolerance for diversity of cultures and religions elicited many questions from the students.

We dream of using the tools we have in our hands to bring peace and harmony to the world.
