On Sweden’s National Day Lindesberg municipality decided to host a more inclusive celebration namely; poetry reading in Arabic.
18:00 National Day celebrations in Oscars Park. In co-operation with Guldsmedshyttans Hemvärnsmusikkår and Kapell Malén. Scholarships, music, and poetry reading in Arabic and Swedish. – Lindesberg municipality website
But this isn’t the first time Sweden’s National Day has been celebrated in a multicultural fashion.
5 years ago Sandviken municipality spent Swedish taxpayer kronor on Kurdish Dance and Arabic Music and just last year Erik Ullenhag, Minister of Integration, spent the day discussing “openness, freedom, and tolerance” at the Islamic Centre in Malmö
