Cultural events The purpose of the events is to create community through song and dance and let the participants find ways to support each other within different groups and to express their own freedom and demand their rights. Many African women and young girls are prisoners in their own homes where their freedom is taken away by their husbands who isolate and control their lives. Cultural events are a way for these
women to come into contact with people outside the home and meet other women and girls. Music events are used as a method to attract participants as music is highly valued among the organization’s target group, while at the same time music becomes a tool that connects people to each other. It breaks isolation, prevents loneliness and works for the fight against exclusion, forced marriage, honor violence and discrimination within various migrant groups.
