Many thanks to the CrossCulture Intern Naveed Majeed for his Cross Cultural Program Internship at the BAI. He provided a comprehensive insight into the broad range of programs of his home organization SHARJAH ART FOUNDATION as well. During his stay he also developed his own artistic works as part of the BAI Studio Program. His internship at the BAI was supported by a scholarship for participating in the CrossCulture Program (CCP) of ifa (Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations).

“With its CrossCulture programme, the ifa is advocating intercultural exchange and the strengthening of networks between Germany and Islamic world as a partner of the Federal Foreign Office.

The programme enables internships for young professionals and volunteers from the participating countries and from Germany. International experience is gained and intercultural competence developed through work stays in another culture. CrossCulture internships open up and strengthen the exchange between people, institutions and cultures and thus enable an enhanced partnership between Germany and Islamic countries.” (Text by courtesy of ifa)

Let’s do it!
