The Multikulti Brno event invites everyone to come and to feel comfortable as if they were at home.
The official Multikulti profile on Facebook is indeed friendly as it reads: “Free drink for every foreigner in Brno (tourist or resident alike). Bring your ID and your friends 🙂 Welcome home!”
The event organized by Tereza Slamová promotes togetherness between people.
The idea of organizing an event such as Multikulti Brno came up from Tereza Slamová’s personal experience.
“I was emigrant in Austria. My parents had signed the Charta 77 and when my family emigrated in 1981, we were welcomed and given asylum by the Austrian government,” Tereza explains us.
In Vienna, Tereza lived in a multicultural society, surrounded by a tolerant, full of empathy and open-minded environment. She feels that in the Czech Republic, it is not quite like that yet.
“Often Czech people lack qualities when it comes to people from different origins. Although there are no refugees here, Czechs are afraid of them and almost all political parties have made refugees the top topic of their political program,” Tereza says.
For this reason, Multikulti Brno is the right event to promote togetherness between Czechs and foreigners.
It gives the chance to Czechs to interact and get to know people from different corners of the world and their culture, while it shows to foreigners that there are people and places that are multikulti-friendly.
Café Flexaret, that targets people from different cultural background, organizes such events from time to time.
