the sarajevo450 project
Today around the world contemporary Jews and Muslims whose lives don't intersect are vulnerable to single-sided media driven narratives about the other. For decades media has narrowly focused on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and painted the picture that no alternative history has ever existed.
The Sarajevo450 Project seeks to interrupt that narrative with public educational workshops. Drawing from Jewish and Muslim stories from four centuries in the Balkans, we will create space for new conversations and relationships and provide participants with tools to be critical media consumers.
