Milan Simecka Foundation organizes multi-cultural festival [Fjúžn] on annual basis (since 2006). The main aim of the festival is to bring people together - from diverse religions or cultures and to raise awareness about new minorities in Slovakia. It is good time and place to present the life migrants and discuss important topics, such as multiculturalism or migration.
Multi-genre festival [Fjúžn] consists of many events within a week: concerts, theater and dance performances, discussions, film screenings, creative workshops... At the end of that week there is also a special event, called Nedelna Parada / Sunday parade - where local citizens interact with migrants from all parts of the world. They sing, talk, dance, taste the food, test the clothes or cook together at Stara Trznica (old market in the heart of Bratislava). It looks like another way of mutual understanding and multi-cultural approach to understand each other. I like this kind of community events a lot.
