Case Study #1: Oman's Message of Islam


"BARAZA" means

"council" or "meeting place" in Swahili. A baraza can be an informal meeting or an official council. In spatial terms it is a place where people meet to chat, exchange ideas, and solve problems.

BARAZA is

an independent, non-profit organization, founded by the same team which is responsible for the concept, realization and organization of the international touring exhibition  "Tolerance, Understanding, Coexistence."

BARAZA offers

an international digital platform to promote dialogue and understanding between peoples. Working hand in hand with  international experts we develop ideas and projects, and present them to patrons and sponsors.
