On March 16th and 17th , 2016 Münchner Trichter e.V.’s symposium “Creating Community. Artistic and Cultural Education – Migration – Participation” will take place! International guests will take part in working out what cultural education is able to contribute to the social topic of migration, escape and pluralism.
Different projects will be presented during two days in 3 plena and 10 workshops. Interested people as well as professionals from the sectors of art, culture, politics, education and social work are invited to exchange ideas with representatives of politics and administration and likewise with adolescents themselves. Various regional, national and international challenges for future projects will be contrasted and discussed. Precisely, the conference will focus on the following questions:
- How can we continue to free up space for all adolescents – regardless of whether newly arriving or already living in Munich – using artistical and cultural education? How can we keep letting them partake of (urban) society?
- To what extend are existing structures, concepts and cooperations in the fields of artistic and cultural education and youth work still suitable?
- Which structural, conceptual or content-related changes will be required in future and which new resources are needed?
International guests from Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Bulgaria, Kurdistan, Italy, Spain and France will work on specific questions and present their cultural or artistic best-practice-projects next to projects started in Munich. Among the German speakers there are Dr. Hans-Georg Küppers (head of the cultural department of the city of Munich), Dr. Hubertus Schröer (former head of the Youth Department of the city of Munich/ Institute for Intercultural Quality Management Munich) and Christian Springer who will give a cabaret performance.
Soon the detailed program will be published on www.muenchner-trichter.de/cc! Patron of the conference is Munich’s mayor Dieter Reiter. The event will take place in “Kreativquartier” Munich, Dachauer Strasse /corner to Schwere-Reiter-Strasse.
