Group Activities

Multiculturalism and Interculturalism Debate

  • Divide the group into two teams, one representing multiculturalism and the other representing interculturalism.
  • Provide each team with time to research and prepare arguments for their position.
  • Conduct a “debate” between the two teams, with each team presenting their arguments for why their approach is present positive or “negative” aspects (if any) about each concept.
  • After the debate, facilitate a discussion to explore the strengths and weaknesses of each approach, and how they differ from one another.
  • Encourage participants to share their own experiences and perspectives on multiculturalism and interculturalism, and how they have seen these approaches play out in their own communities.

The Intercultural Museum

  • The activity consists of handing out different words related to interculturality around the room.
  • Next to each word, place a piece of cardboard.
  • Ask learners to put on the cardboard something they think about that word. It can be a drawing, a sentence or another word and they will have to rotate through all the cards. 
  • Afterwards, there will be a group discussion to explain what they have written or drawn on the cardboard.
