Through sharing their own stories, the participants of the Youth Theatre Program got to learn about one another's culture. Besides their collaboration in writing, rehearsing and performing a play based on their cultural sharing, the participants also celebrated Eid together!

|"Abdi showed me what a faithful Muslim he is, because he always follows the rules. He fasted before Eid, .. it makes me think about religions in the world." ~Mike Xu (with Hudeify in photo)|
|"I feel happy to get a card. It was a surprise to get a card. It was nice to get a card from others who are not Muslim" ~Abdi|
CultureLink's Summer Theatre Program showcased "Our Story, Our Journey", a play they wrote, rehearsed and performed in various locations throughout the summer of 2013.
