We run weekly workshops where we invite experts in various fields to come and share with our young people. From story tellers, to drummers to mask makers its an endless fun and learning season. At the end of the season we invite the public to a grand finale where the young people show off what they have learnt.
At Passion4Fusion we understand that cultural heritage plays a very vital role in the democratisation process of any society. Culture has an important social function and fosters feelings of group identity and solidarity. It is also a means of communicating values, beliefs and customs. It is very important for each group or community to convey and preserve its traditions and shared values. Our work explores intertwining heritage of Scottish and diverse communities. We organise and host social and cultural events and workshops. We use Cultural Heritage as a tool for self-expression and to offer an alternative point of view. In presenting and celebrating a different picture people will be more accepting of differences and diversity in real life which will, in turn, stimulate mutual respect and combat the causes of Sectarianism, discrimination and hate crimes.
