Intercultural meeting: islam Intercultural meeting: islam 10/09/20

We would like to invite you for another of our intercultural meetings. This time its focus is going to be Islam. Together we are going to learn what do those who follow Islam believe in.  We are going to do so from a point of view of a person raised without being a believer and therefore in a matter that is comprehensible even for an ateist. We have also invited Mr Ahsan who we share his story.

  • When: on Monday, 26th October from 6 PM
  • Where: online on Skype

If you are interested in attending please send an email to to register.

We will send link by email to registered participants.

The meeting is going to be in English and it is going to be moderated by Marek Procházka.

We are looking forward to meeting you.
