Module 1 (10-12h)

Getting to know the “abp – Akademische Bildungsplattform e.V”.

The EU is more than ever confronted with global challenges such as mass migration. To successfully master these challenges, ordinary Turkish workers & citizens of Turkish origin, some of whom could not even speak German or had no qualifications or money themselves, founded the “Akademische Bildungsplattform e.V.”. On the one hand, it is committed to popular and vocational education, for example through student support. Various services are offered, such as language skills, school development or integration courses etc. With our range of services, we respond to current social, cultural, educational and labour market policy developments and challenges. We support people with a migration background in expanding their language skills and are committed to supporting children and young people in their educational development. To this end, we cooperate with the relevant authorities, advice centres and migrant organizations. We are very pleased to be able to make an important contribution to integration and society through our ten German classes.

The abp is unique and an opportunity at the heart of our society, with the motivation to publicise it as a project throughout Europe and to give people some courage.
Nothing is impossible.

Module 2 (14-16h)

Artistic creation.

The RUMI Cultural Center e.V. was founded in July 2009 to bring people from different cultural backgrounds together to collectively defy intolerance and disrespect. Through projects on artistic, musical, and interreligious levels, encounters between locals and newcomers are facilitated. Discussion groups, reading days, mutual visits to religious institutions, courses on traditional musical instruments and painting techniques, diverse sports activities, as well as projects for children and teenagers to engage with their city, such as “I know my city” or “Who was actually? – Namesakes in our city,” are just a few examples.

We warmly invite you to get to know us in our workshops. Through artistic creation, we aim to foster cultural encounters. Participants will learn the enchanting art of watercolour painting and the art of beautiful writing (calligraphy).

An open buffet will also ensure culinary delight alongside the workshops.
