The Tolerance Posters Show inspired and motivated the   Friends of Youth Association of Maribor   to organize a youth-oriented project in Maribor, Slovenia. On the International Day of Tolerance, the   Maribor National Liberation Museum   hosted a contest called "100 PEOPLE, 100 WONDERS" for the best slogan and posters to promote tolerance and acceptance of diversity. 765 slogans and 11 posters on the subject of tolerance were submitted to the competition. From these, a committee consisting of Kornelija Kaurin (Association of Friends of Youth Maribor), Uroš Dokl and Jan Malec Svetel (Museum of National Liberation Maribor) and Tanja Cvitko (cultural producer, Idea Box Association), selected the winners. They are currently displayed at the youngsters' exhibition at the Museum of National Liberation Maribor. We are expressing our gratitude to the young authors of the selected slogans and posters: Timotej Vališer, Lili Makuc, Til Trinkhaus, Ana Kovše, Idol Vrella, Mia Bratkov

"Symbols of Hate" Lecture in Europe House

As part of the   "Tolerance" exhibition at Europe House , in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, I held a lecture on November 15, 2023. My lecture, live from New York, was on the topic "Symbols of Hate". It was focused on new symbols of hate on a global and on a local and regional level, which was followed by a Q&A. The lecture was attended by art and political science students as well as by their professors.    

Lecture "Symbols of Hate"

As a part of the celebration of the Day for Tolerance (November 16th), Europe House in Sarajevo organized a Tolerance Poster Show and invited me to give an online lecture "Symbols of Hate" on Wednesday, November 15th. The purpose of the lecture is to educate the audience about old and new symbols of hate used by different groups of Neo-Nazis, racists, and other bigots.   You can read more here about the Tolerance Poster Show and lecture in Sarajevo here .    

The Tolerance in "Spoon & Tamago"

I recently came across this blog post on the prestigious Japanese blog "Spoon & Tamago" . The post is about the first Tolerance Poster Show in Tokyo , Japan, and talks about the importance of this kind of show in raising awareness of tolerance and equality. "Curated by Aya Komboo and Matthew Waldman, the exhibition seeks to raise awareness for all forms of diversity, from gender to LGBTQ, while also acknowledging Japan’s inaction and lack of awareness when it comes to equality. Japan consistently ranks low when it comes to inclusivity and diversity, especially compared to other developed nations."
