As part of the project “Multaka: Museum as Meeting Point”, Syrian and Iraqi refugees are being trained as museum guides so that they can then provide guided museum tours for Arabic-speaking refugees in their native language. "Multaka" (Arabic for “meeting point”) also aims to facilitate the interchange of diverse cultural and historical experiences. Multaka guide Kefah explains why the project “Multaka: Museum as Meeting Point” matters to all of us.
