GRAND BAL DU PETIT NOUVEL AN
Every year in January, you are invited to dance to the tune of the Orchestre Jaune, at the Casino de Montbenon, Lausanne. The proceeds of the evening go to Coexistences.
Coexistences organises on a regular basis a fundraising diner. It allows you to support the association while indulging in delicious middle eastern culinary specialties.
Several times a year, Coexistences invites its members to hear outside speakers present on a wide range of topics. For example, in 2012 a discussion around the theme of «Confronting the reality of the other, what difference does it make?», was followed by the screening of Jean-Pierre Clavien and Yvan Dalain’s movie «Au coeur du racisme», 1984 (“At the heart of racism”). Some themes among others:
