BALTURKA

BALTURKA is a non-profit organization dedicated to promote harmony in diverse cultural setting in Latvia. Just as among real people, dialogue among groups, societies and cultures is one of the most important methods for understanding and knowing one another, for seeing differences, similarities, and dreams for the future, and for making a new world where human values exist more effectively. If there is not dialogue, then there is information that is second-hand, incorrect, lacking, and remote from reality. Relations developed like this and based on unjust, inappropriate prejudices possess the ability to produce unnecessary and meaningless problems for everyone. Of course there will be problems from time to time among countries and cultures, but to resolve these, it is to everyone’s benefit to take as a basis real information and real communication.
