These four values represent to our Museum the fundamental elements required in order for social cohesion to thrive. Through all of our work we strengthen these values, so we can strengthen our communities.

Freedom

We believe in the freedom to choose and to be different. We believe in freedom of religion, and freedom for women, children and minorities.

We believe in freedom of expression and the freedom to have an alternative view. We believe in the equal rights of all people, and their freedom to be who they choose to be. We believe in Freedom From and Freedom To.

Tolerance

Tolerance is not merely the act of putting up with something. As UNESCO’s Declaration of Principles on Tolerance (1995) states:

Tolerance recognises the universal right and fundamental freedom of others. People are naturally diverse, only tolerance can ensure the survival of mixed communities in ever region of the globe.

Education for tolerance should aim at countering influences that lead to fear and exclusion of others, and help young people develop capacities for independent judgement, critical thinking and ethical reasoning.

Respect

Attitude and behaviour towards and regard for all people regardless of religion, race and ethnicity.

Fairness

Equal treatment for all people, without favouritism or discrimination, particularly discrimination related to race and religion. There is no place for inequality.
