CONTENTS AND TOPICS
They come from Romania, Afghanistan, Poland, Italy, Latvia and Africa: Fourteen young people from the Mittelschule Landsberg Ost between 14 and 18 years are currently working on migration histories and experiences in the past and their very own life situations within the framework of the “Turks’ Migraine yesterday” project. Young people, who are not even a year in Germany with their parents, sit at the table when it comes to the special features of everyday German life.
The extracurricular project is part of the cultural education work of the Landsberger Kulturverein «kunstBauStelle e.V.». The implementation is carried out together with the Bündnerispartner, the Mittelschule Landsberg and the Landsberg Tagblatt. In the third part, “Turks’ Day”, young people research the life-lines of foreign doctors, nurses and persons working in social or medical institutions in Landsberg. To this end, professionals from the fields of journalism, radio and photography lead young people to deal with the topic of migration and to capture their discoveries in word, image and sound.
The young people gain self-confidence through medial work, feel integrated, learn to express themselves artistically and journalistically with experiences and emotions, thereby improving their German language skills. For many, the encounters with people who have succeeded in the integration and professional qualification are a model for their own career. But you also learn how much effort is required and that you must “follow your dreams”, but also work on them.
The results are shown at an audiovisual exhibition in Landsberg.
