Recently one of the most discussed social problems has been the migration crisis. As a result of the aggressive political campaigns, the Hungarian society sympathizes with the negative judgement of the migrants and sees them as potential source of danger. The project promoter wanted to change this point of view, because they believe that the core problem is the fear of the unknown. Their goal was to make a positive example in order to achieve a more open-minded and accepting society. By presenting the minorities that have been living in the 8th district for decades, they showed the broader community how well they have been integrated into the district as well as how much they contribute to Hungarian culture and economy. In the introductory campaign the organizers included members of the minority groups, who presented their personal experiences and contributed directly to the reduction of prejudice and discrimination. In the creation of the video on the inclusion of the concerned groups, among others the Green Spider Foundation, the MigSzol group and the Roma Press Center collaborated. The Quarter of Cultures festival contributed to the fight against prejudice and discrimination and will create a platform where the organizers's mission can reach not only the visitors and participants, but through the media the message will arrive to thousands of people.
