Last Updated on July 5, 2022

UNESCO Kulturweit Tandem Program

In kulturweit-Tandem, two participants each from an African country and Germany deal with the history of colonialism and its effects on the present.

Together you will develop projects against racism that you can implement in theatres, museums and schools, associations, initiatives or companies in Germany. The program consists of a two-month language course in your country, a four-week seminar on the African continent and a three-month project phase in Germany. All participants are financially supported and pedagogically accompanied.

With kulturweit-Tandem you are committed to a world without discrimination. You gain international experience, give free rein to your creativity in the project phase and establish a network with which you can get involved for a long time to come.
