Braunschweig, lectures: JourneyStamps – Oct 01, 2020, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.

As a special feature of the Travel Story event series, under the motto “Live together, grow together”, one of the goals of the intercultural week 2020 is to exchange ideas and experiences across borders, to break down prejudices and to jointly create perspectives for the future. How do we live well together? How do we welcome people of different origins and what does this do to us as a society?

The stage for “Our Common Culture” will belong to those who themselves come from other cultures, get to know Germany as a new country and have built a new life for themselves here. The speakers are Asih Feuerhahn (German-Indonesian Society), Luz Helena Marín Guzmán (artist and cultural manager – Colombia/Italy) and Fabien Diffe (student of fine arts at the HBK – Cameroon). The program will be supplemented by a subsequent panel discussion, which will focus on the experiences of the speakers in Germany and how a common culture can be defined and shaped.

Admission is free, but prior registration is required.
