Arts and cultural artefacts will be used to promote and celebrate the richness of the Mandaean culture and heritage through an exhibition day. It will also include an interactive community art project developed by attendees throughout the day. Workshops will be held prior with the Mandaean community to develop crafts to display.
The project’s intention is to foster connection between Mandaean refugees who are recently arrived and Mandaean community members who are more established. It also engages the wider community to attend the exhibition and promotes a cross-cultural dialogue. The Mandaean Women’s Union’s vision is to establish relationships with other communities and support all refugee communities to settle successfully.
