Art and empowerment

In open workshops you will explore with other teenagers and young adults what different forms of discrimination: From adultism to antiziganism to queerphobia. Young activists portrait their individual projects against discrimination. And we'll try out these artistic forms of activism right on the spot.

know your rights

For people between the ages of 16 and 27

How are art and discrimination connected? Can art do something against discrimination? How can I express myself in solidarity through art? And what do I need to know about the different forms of discrimination?

These are precisely the questions that our workshop series "Art in Action" addresses. After getting to know each other, we have invited different experts/activists on the topic to each date, with whom we will also try out and implement practical artistic actions directly. This is how solidarity becomes artistic practice! You can join us at any time.
