MEPEACE.org Chat 14 Mar - After-event discussion - Signs and Symbols: Cultural Marks / Definitions of Identity

Dear Peacemakers!

After each MEPEACE.org Chat Workshop (a new kind of event taking place every second Sunday in MEPEACE.org Chat), we (the MEPEACE Dialogue Team, that is Cigdem Yilmazer, Jessica de Souza, Johanna Silverthorne and myself) open a dedicated 'after-event discussion', in order to give the workshop participants and other interested members the chance to elaborate on their points raised during the workshop, share new ideas on the respective topic with others, and discuss with others about the topic.

Information about our event which successfully took place on 28 March can be found here:

http://www.mepeace.org/events/mepeace-chat-march-14


Please also have a look at the attached written summary of the workshop!


The leading questions were

What do symbols and signs mean to you? How would you define them?

Can symbols and signs be powerful and important in shaping one's/a community's identity? In which ways?


During the 90 minutes of live discussion, the various participants, together with the moderators, already addressed these questions to a large extent. However, feel free to add anything here. But please stick to the topic

 

Signs and Symbols: Cultural Marks / Definitions of Identity


The Dialogue Team won't interfere in this discussion - however, take into account that 'normal' moderation (as in every other discussion) applies - so please observe the MEPEACE.org Guidelines.

This discussion will be open for replies and comments until Saturday, 27 March, the day before the next MEPEACE.org Chat, on Sunday, 28 March. Hence, there will therefore only be one 'open' after-event discussion at any one time.
