The Intercultural city aims at building its policies and identity on the explicit acknowledgement that diversity can be a resource for the development of the society.

The first step is the adoption (and implementation) of strategies that facilitate positive intercultural encounters and exchanges, and promote equal and active participation of residents and communities in the development of the city, thus responding to the needs of a diverse population. The Intercultural integration policy model is based on extensive research evidence, on a range of international legal instruments, and on the collective input of the cities member of the Intercultural Cities programme that share their good practice examples on how to better manage diversity, address possible conflicts, and benefit from the diversity advantage.

This section offers examples of intercultural approaches that facilitate the development and implementation of intercultural strategies.

"The Third Dimension - Exhibition and Learning Space” seeks to offer a unique and meaningful experience about the possibility of multiple perspectives and the deconstruction of hegemonic narratives. It strives to cross personal and collective boundaries in a way that exposes the potential of shared life both locally and around the globe.

“The Third Dimension” is not a regular exhibition space since here the audience will be invited to touch, react, and take an active part in the space.

Sponsored by Municipality of Haifa, The Israeli Lotery, Forum ZDF, the American Embassy in Israel, “The Third Dimension” will be inaugurated on 6th December 2018 and will aim to:

  • expand participants’ perspectives on shared living and provide them with tools to live and work in a multicultural society through experiential encounter,
  • work toward pluralistic thought and behaviour patterns, respect for the other, and respect for oneself
  • create an inspiring space that aims to discuss, promote and build an egalitarian and pluralistic society

An example of a work specifically developed for the exhibition is “Cinderalls” by Artist Emi Sfard and Immersive Media Specialist Lior Stherm. The project is an interactive video installation that combines various versions of the folktale ‘Cinderella’ based on different places of origin such as Morocco, Russia, Germany, and Palestine. Stherm and Sfard created a hybrid immersive world fill with objects, scenes and characters from the different versions and invite the visitors to take an active part by not only experiencing the famous story being told an exceptional visual experience but through the use of interactive tools the viewer him/herself will be able to take part in storytelling in a nonlinear way and in different languages and cultural traditions, thus inviting the audience to experience a known story being told differently.
