“Because it is easier to be enriched by our differences when we understand them”
The values carried by TellUs Cultures guide us in the actions we conduct. They were brought to light through a participatory process by all active members of the association. They are:
- Understanding others
- Freedom of speech
- Respect for diversity
The main mission of TellUs Cultures is to promote a better understanding between cultures.
This includes the following 5 missions:
Collect intercultural experiences, these moments of daily life that question or inspire us when we are in contact with another culture
Archive, translate and setup the collected intercultural experiences
Research explanations and offer theoretical background
Showcase the intercultural experiences and debate on the questions they raise
Showcase the intercultural experiences of our contributors
Orally or in writing, to unload the emotions tied to the moment, grow from others’ life experiences and find answers to our questions, with the intent of promoting understanding between cultures.
- Lead intercultural interviews
With people from all horizons who wish to share and yield their experience to the association in order to extend the TellUs collection, refine the leads to help explain experiences and nourish the actions we offer.
- Identify and debate intercultural questions
To transcribe authentically what the authors of intercultural experiences underwent and focus our actions, by theme or culture.
- Create a space for dialogue between cultures
To promote conversation between cultures, that is hardly ever spontaneous, we offer workshops, activities or interactive readings for our members or on demand, within a nonviolent framework, and produce content in four languages (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish).
- Train independent and nomadic project managers
To benefit from one another’s skills, unify practices and coherently uphold the values of the association, everywhere in the world.
