kulturweit-Tandem invites people from African countries and Germany to explore the history of colonialism from different perspectives and to engage with our postcolonial present. You will develop projects in the fields of culture, education and sustainability that you can implement together in Germany.
In the kulturweit Tandem project, two participants – one from an African country and one from Germany – reappraise the history of colonialism and its effects on the present. Together you develop anti-racism projects that you can implement in theatres, museums and schools, in charities, initiatives or companies in Germany.
The programme consists of a two-month language course accompanying everyday life, a three-week seminar in Kenya and a three-month project phase in Germany. All participants receive financial support and educational guidance.
You can apply if your centre of life is in Germany or one of the participating African countries and if you are of age. Basic language skills in German, French or English are required. You must also have a very good knowledge of one of these three languages.
Through the kulturweit Tandem project, you are making a contribution to a world without discrimination. You will gain international experience, let
The kulturweit Tandem programme is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and is part of the German Government’s catalogue of measures tackling right-wing extremism and racism.
Previous thematic knowledge or a specific school degree are not necessary.
