The Tente d'Abraham (Abraham's Tent) is an interfaith centre founded in 2006, by missionaries working to support Islamic-Christian dialogue. It is composed of a large library with cultural, reference and academic works for students and school pupils in Arabic, French and English. It has a large learning space and two smaller rooms for young people to meet in, as well as a lecture theatre and offices.
The centre also houses offices for the local Diocese and the National Interfaith Dialogue organisation. Its overall objective is to lead dialogue activities through lectures, conference-debates, teambuilding and other group activities in order to eliminate religious prejudice. It has significant experience in organising, in particular:
- Support for students at primary and secondary schools.
- Literacy classes.
- Summer schools.
- Film screenings and debates on peace work.
- Arabic, French and English language classes.
At the weekends, the centre organises events and cultural activities for young people from different religions.
