Art against xenophobia

At Burgården Upper Secondary School in Gothenburg, Sweden, more than twenty students are marketing Stavanger2008.

Artist Pecka Søderberg explaining his art to one of the students at Burgården College

The twenty two students have worked together with local artists trying to find artistic ways of expressing love, religion, death and hospitality. Questions have been discussed through talks at school, various events and home visits. The students come from many parts of the world, and the main goal of this project is to strengthen the intercultural dialogue, says Ingrid Wallin, teacher at Burgården.

The school is like a Gothenburg in miniature, where people from many cultures mingle. The main difference is that the city is more segregated, Ingrid continues.
Burgården is participating in the Youth and Migration project, which is on the agenda when the city of Stavanger is celebrating its status as European Capital of Culture in 2008.
