Kulturweit Tandem to Develop Projects Exploring the History of Colonialism

Kulturweit and UNESCO logos.

In the kulturweit Tandem project, two participants – one from an African country and one from Germany – reappraise the history of colonialism and its effects on the present. Together you develop anti-racism projects that you can implement in theatres, museums and schools, in charities, initiatives or companies in Germany.

The programme consists of a two-month language course in your country, a four-week seminar on the African continent and a three-month project phase in Germany. All participants receive financial support and educational guidance.

The first round of the programme will take place between September 2022 and February 2023. You can apply if you live in Germany, Ghana, Cameroon, Kenya, Namibia or Togo. The international seminar will take place in Kenya.

Through the kulturweit Tandem project, you are making a contribution to a world without discrimination. You will gain international experience, let your creativity run free during the project phase and build a network that you can stay involved with for a long time to come.

The kulturweit Tandem programme is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and is part of the German Government’s catalogue of measures tackling right-wing extremism and racism.

Kulturweit’s offer includes:

  • Coverage of the international and national travel costs for flights or trains to the seminar location and the placement centre and subsidy for the two-month language course.
  • Accommodation and meals during the international seminar (2022 in Kenya).
  • A full-time job for three months in an institution in the cultural, educational or sustainability sector in Germany including monthly stipend of €750.
  • International health, liability and accident insurance.
