    Art is sparkles, fireworks, energy!
    Art is an encounter, art is participation, most definitely.
    Art is boundless, universal, understandable to all. And it's an opportunity, if not the best
    opportunity, to see anew what you had come to see as set in stone.
    We've had this idea at the Bertelsmann Stiftung for a while and have wanted
    Kai Unzicker, Expert for Social Cohesion, Bertelsmann Stiftung to explore the roles played by art and culture in living together in cultural diversity.
    Then, together with the UNESCO Commission, we decided it would be
    worth taking an inventory of sorts to see what we have in Germany,
    what works well, and what's happened over the last 20 to 30 years.
    Burcu Dogramaci, Professor for Art History, LMU Munich All of the case studies selected for the study are extremely
    interesting and impressive.
    Each one considers societal diversity from a unique perspective
    and contributes constructively to this diversity.
    Certain things demonstrate quite clearly the role of art and culture in living together.
    For example, when people don't speak the same language and can't
    communicate with each other, but everyone has a musical instrument in their hands and they play together,
    they can make music together and create something together.
    We see this in the case of "Banda Internationale,"
    a music group whose members come from different countries and who bring their various influences and musical styles to the group.
    was particularly impressed by the "Selam Opera!" program
    at Berlin's Komische Oper, because it leaves behind the institution of opera
    and seeks out a mobile experience for both opera staff
    and the audience, which is sought out beyond the physical space of the opera house.
    Mustafa Akça, Project Manager, „Selam Opera!", Komische Oper Berlin Of course, we clearly want to reach everyone, including those who don't attend
    opera, for whatever reasons. It's really about the city's cultural diversity, it's about people.
    Arnulf Ballhorn, Double Bassist, Komische Oper Berlin We have diversity among those who attend, because we seek out very different
    locations that really couldn't differ more from each other.
    But we somehow manage – at least in most cases and with most people – to meet them
    where they're at in their lives and bring them together, at least for a moment, in what we're doing.
    Katarzyna Włodarczyk, Mezzo-soprano, Komische Oper Berlin When we start, they're so surprised, they don't know what's going on.
    We move through the people and bring them with us.
    At first, they're a bit scared, but then I always see the sparkle in their eyes.
    Our study shows that projects that are ready to break cultural norms,
    move outside the theater or opera building and onto the streets in urban neighborhoods,
    projects like "Selam Opera!" or the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie in Bremen
    succeed in reaching a variety of cultural groups through art and culture and thereby
    include them in the writing of Germany's image of itself as an immigration society.
    The study has shown us the great potential inherent to societal diversity.
    The projects we've selected draw on this potential and help us
    see immigration and migration not as a disadvantage or something negative,
    but rather something offering great potential for our future as a society.
