This event was part of the cultural series organized by IOPHR, to celebrate cultural diversity and promote inter-community dialogue using the transcendent language of music and art. The event consisted of diverse music groups from the east and west, and art exhibits portraying the message of unity, harmony and social cohesion. With several events hosted in London over the years, the 2017 event was held in Hannover for the first time, and was a great success based on our feedback. The full event can be viewed here.
