Our Cultural programs

We seek to transmit Peace through our movement that exemplifies how people from several countries, classes, races and creeds that can be united with a common intention, transcending language barriers and customs, a tolerance between ethnic groups, a love for humanity amplified with songs that intend to inspire empathy and a spirit of union between all living beings and mother earth.

The cultural programs consist providing free cultural multi-ethnic shows for the communities, we perform music in more than 20 languages, ethnic dances are complemented with fire twriling; clowns, horses and acrobatics thus promoting cultural diversity and constructing cultural bridges between locals and foreigners, which also helps generate confidence and acceptance between us and the communities, opening the doors to other environmental projects.

Between the musical themes and acts, ecological messages are transmitted, that touch subjects as global warming, the importance of the recycling, care for animals, water and the conservation of forests and most clearly the tolerance among cultures, which is exponenciates through the diverse cultures that integrate the caravan for example Arabs and Jews.

Nomads United’s cultural program has been active since1999, and has created performances in countless villages in towns in America and Asia, being one of the movements with greater cultural diversity since it has artists ranging from 40 countries, all united, dispersing the messages of peace and love for
humanity and nature.


Excerpts from UNESCO Declaration on
cultural diversity
. Paris 2/11 2001

ARTICLE 1
Cultural diversity:

The common heritage of humanity.
Culture takes diverse forms across time and space.
This diversity is embodied in the uniqueness and
plurality of the identities of the groups and societies
making up humankind.
As a source of exchange, innovation and creativity,
cultural diversity is as necessary for humankind as
biodiversity is for nature. In this sense, it is the
common heritage of humanity and should be
recognized and affirmed for the benefit of
present and future generations.

ARTICLE 2
From cultural diversity to cultural pluralism.

In our increasingly diverse societies, it is
essential to ensure harmonious interaction among
people and groups with plural, varied and dynamic
cultural identities as well as their willingness
to live together. Policies for the inclusion and
participation of all citizens are guarantees of social
cohesion, the vitality of civil society and peace.
Thus defined, cultural pluralism gives policy
expression to the reality of cultural diversity.
Indissociable from a democratic framework, cultural
pluralism is conducive to cultural exchange and
to the flourishing of creative capacities that sustain
public life.

ARTICLE 6
Towards access for all to cultural diversity.

While ensuring the free flow of ideas by word
and image care should be exercised that all cultures
can express themselves and make themselves known.
Freedom of expression, media pluralism, multilingualism, equal access to art and to scientific and technological knowledge, including in digital form,
and the possibility for all cultures to have access to
the means of expression and dissemination are the
guarantees of cultural diversity.

ARTICLE 7
Cultural heritage as the wellspring of creativity.

Creation draws on the roots of cultural tradition,
but flourishes in contact with other cultures.
For this reason, heritage in all its forms must be
preserved, enhanced and handed on to future
generations as a record of human experience and
aspirations, so as to foster creativity in all its
diversity and to inspire genuine dialogue among
cultures.

MAIN LINES OF AN ACTION PLAN FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE UNESCO UNIVERSAL DECLARATION ON CULTURAL DIVERSITY

of cooperation, that are most conducive to
the safeguarding and promotion of cultural

best practices in regard to cultural pluralism
with a view to facilitating, in diversified

Cultural activities

Depending on the people and talents whom integrate the group we organize activities that range among:

Music:
Celtic, Arab, Israeli, Andean, Russian, African, Bosa Nova , Mauri, Cuban Salsa, Colombian Merengue, Tarantela, gypsie Rumanian, Flamenco, Yodeling and Classic Music, etc…

Visual acts:
African dance, Flamenco, Belly dance, dances with fire, Acrobalance, Stomp, Juggling, Clowns, Mimes, Celtic Dance, etc.
In some of these acts horses are used.

Theater:
Our program of theater seeks to address social and environmental problems through representations.
One of the stories portrays a combat between tribes, where at the moment that one of the actors is about to kill the other, the whole question is raised of why the tribes are in conflict, as a result both adversaries become allies and decide to embark on a mystical journey on horses and spread this revelation throughout the world. As they go through different countries they meet other cultures and exchange dialogues and music.
Through plays like these we seek to transmit messages which can create lasting and deep effects in the audiences.
