In the framework of a cooperation agreement established between United Nations Associations of Serbia and the Dialogue Caf√© Association, the opening of two new Dialogue Cafe in Serbia (Belgrade and Subotica) are planned to be open in Serbia further to the one that is already operational in Novi Pazar. Thanks to this amazing partnership, the Dialogue Cafe network will be strengthen as a whole and its serbian leg consolidated. Dialogue Caf√© is based on the radical but simple idea that people have many things in common and given the opportunity, they will explore their common interests, sparking collaborations and stimulating ideas that address the major issues of today. These kinds of conversations and collaborations can lead to new ways of thinking and doing: they can empower individuals and communities, break down prejudice and misconceptions and promote greater understanding and co-operation across cultures.
Dialogue Caf√© is a low cost, low carbon solution to the challenge of connecting people who want to share and collaborate for common interests in other parts of the world. It also provides a unique experience. The technology we use at Dialogue Caf√©, TelePresence, links people through life-size high definition video and sound, allowing them to talk and meet in a context that is as ‚Äėreal‚Äô as possible despite being located on different sides of the world. As such, Dialogue Caf√© plays a role as a bridge to the rest of the world: it enables local hosts, and local civil society groups, to share their work, knowledge and ideas and learn from others from around the world.
The Official Opening of Dialogue Cafe Belgrade will take place next 13th December 2016 from 15h to 17h London time. The event will include two parts: firstly, the official opening of DC Belgrade; secondly, a session on “Interethnic and interreligious trust, dialogue and cooperation – the importance of respecting human rights“.

A new generation of practitioners have espoused the ‚Äúhandcraft‚ÄĚ movement propelled by these uniquely skilled independent designers and artists. Some of them look to history to nurture their making and provide an added value to their creations, the value of preserving knowledge and cultural heritage. Most of them become inspired by their own culture, other prefer to drink from other continents. At the same time, we share a rich cultural heritage as a result of centuries of exchange and migratory flows. Promoting cultural diversity is essential for contributing to economic and social cohesion.
In the framework of the cycle Global Exchange of Crafts Makers, a third global conversation on “Crafting cultural heritage: how to promote intercultural dialogue and diversity through traditional crafts” will be held next 29 September 2016 from 16h to 17h30 (London time) between Dialogue Caf√© √Čvora, Dialogue Cafe Novi Pazar, Dialogue Caf√© Lisbon¬†and Dialogue Cafe Rio de Janeiro.
During this session, participants will debate the intercultural bridges artisans might develop by inspiring their crafts product of different cultures and from different heritage.
How artisans look to their own cultural heritage? In which ways artisans provide innovation to their products? How artisans look to the possibilities of being inspired from other cultures and heritages? Is there a space for cultural diversity in the artisan market?
