DialoguePerspectives invites gifted and engaged students and doctoral candidates from all over Europe to work together for one year at a time. With the support of the Federal Foreign Office, the programme trains European leaders in science, culture, politics and business to become experts in engaging in a novel form of dialogue which is socially-oriented and engages different faiths and contrasting worldviews. The programme focuses on an intensive, critical exchange and building flourishing, long-lasting relationships. The participants represent the diversity of European society in a unique way. At DialoguePerspectives, the participants’ diverse backgrounds and experiences make for a fruitful exchange and create the urgently needed space for encounters, exchange and dialogue.

With Dr. Max Czollek, lyricist and essayist, curating the academic and artistic leadership, and Jo Frank and Johanna Korneli of Dialogueperspectives as project leaders, the CPPD works to develop artistic, civil society, education policy, and didactic concepts and ideas for the pluralisation of European cultures of remembrance. The CPPD stands for a transition from an identity politics and monoculturally oriented culture of remembrance to a recognition of plural European societies and a diversity of cultures of remembrance. read more
