Our lab supports the art practice of young people with a special emphasis on those with refugee and migrant backgrounds and/or experiences of racism. In this context, we offer workshops to highlight the diversity of their experiences and forms of expression and to generate artistic impulses. An additional focus of our work is to provide connections to protagonists from the fields of art, politics, and education. Through the exchange of ideas, the forming of partnerships, and the collaborative realization of projects we promote synergies and foster the sustainable development of all related activities. Our discussions and artistic contributions will be documented in an audio feature, which will not only record the results, but will also provide a platform for publishing art works created during the lab. In these ways, we seek to contribute to the emergence of a comprehensive range of artistic expression that reflects the multiple perspectives and voices of our core groups. Our holistic approach supports the exchange of knowledge and the sustainable development of artistic practices in our target group and contributes to the enhancement of equal opportunities and social empowerment through art.
The nationwide Artist Labs are a measure of the Performing Arts Fund, financed with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media within the framework of NEUSTART KULTUR.
