Open Board Meeting in the Arabic-Swedish Network

Dear members of The Arabic-Swedish Network.

We are now announcing for three new board members for the upcoming six months. We are since October 2013 registered as an organization and are looking for dedicated board members that are willing to push forward the work of the network.

We are looking for candidates that:

– Are interested in the growing network with the dynamic potential of making people with different language and cultural backgrounds to meet

– Are interested in collectively planning for future activities of the organization

– As we as an organisation welcome people regardless religious, ethnic or political affiliations, it’s a must that board members share this point of view.

If you’re interested please send a private message to Jenny Cecilia or Dalida Chomille Bollig. We want to know about interested candidates before the meeting. If more people will apply for the positions than the number of advertised positions, attending members will vote to choose the candidates.
Being part of a lively and growing network can be a good merit for the future!

We welcome you to the next boardmeeting on February 23 at Jenny’s place in Malmö where we will choose the board. For the address kindly contact us through our Facebookgroup or by email
We hope to see as many of you as possible!


Dalida & Jenny

Welcome to the melting pot of the Arabic-Swedish network!

Starting in 2010 as a language exchange meetings posted on, the Arabic-Swedish network has grown over the years and become much more. From holding small exchange meetings between Arabic and Swedish, the network started a Facebookgroup that many started to join.

Based in Malmö in Southern Sweden the network has now includes over 200 members that are interested in learning about languages and cultures – and the dynamic of exchange with people from other places.

We are now a registered non-profit organisation with a board and many active members that are themselves initiating events and happenings. Poetry evenings, dinner parties, contacts for research or travels, studies or other exchanges, takes place all the time. Are you also a person with a thing for the Arabic culture or are you curious about Sweden? Maybe you just like to meet new and interesting people? It’s the members that are creating the network, so join us and come to one of our happenings! Our creative melting pot can only become better.
