V.O.E.M. vzw (Vereniging voor Ontplooiing en Emancipatie van Moslims) / +32494 48 88 26Some Ghentian organisations work together on the project of Dialogue Tables. The purpose of these dialogue tables is to get people from different ethnical, cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds together around one table. We want 'old' Ghentians to meet 'new' Ghentians who have a migratory or refugee background. These people could cross one another in the streets without greeting or even looking at each other, but when they take part in the dialogue tables, they get to now one another. We are convinced that this kind of initiatives, that stimulate dialogue between different kind of communities within the city of Ghent, fight prejudices and can make Ghent a warmer and more open space for everyone. The dialogue tables take place once a month during the whole year of 2018.
