Refugium – Areas for Culture(s)

On June 27, 2016, the LAG Soziokultur & Kulturpädagogik (Socioculture & Culture Pedagogy) Rheinland-Pfalz invited experts and interested persons to a symposium about cultural work by/with/for refugees and locals. After an introductory lecture by Mark Terkessidis in the symposium REFUGIUM, various panels discussed central topics, questions, and conditions for the success of cultural actions. Using current examples, different approaches to the problems as well as ways to transfer accepted projects and forms of work were discussed.

The City Walks project was presented in a panel by Eleonore, Johannes, Wael and Pranita.

We visited the exhibition I BECOME GERMAN together with German school groups and members of the TARHIB group as well as German courses of the CJD. You can find all the information about the exhibition here:

High Up and Back Down

May 2, 2016

Today we (Andrea Lutz-Kluge and Eleonore Hefner) together with Tayseer, Ahmed, and some others, as well as a group from Hasan Özdemir’s German course for women visited the city hall. Treasurer Dieter Feid was waiting for us and introduced us to the secrets of municipal budgets.




Up to the 80s, Ludwigshafen was one of the weathiest cities in Germany – now there is a record debt of more than 1.3 billion euros! Not an easy job to be treasurer in this situation. Dieter Feid pointed out: it is necessary to save, but nevertheless it is important to invest in schools and roads as well as sport and culture – also for the future of the city!

At the end, Mrs. Müller and Mrs. Hartmann explained the area of public relations and gave an overview of the work of the approximately 3400 civic employees.

Quite complicated!
